Love Me For Me

Love me for who I have become,
Not for who I was.
Love me for my natural beauty,
Not for my plastered beauty.
Love me not for my smile,
But the love that shines through it.
Love me not for my apparel,
But for my sense of humor.
Love me not for my laugh,
But for the kindness that shines through it.
All I ask of you is that:
You love me for me.

    Very true, about the inner you being the one we see and love. Deep thoughts.
    We are very proud of you. I ordered your book.

Poem of the Day

poet Emily Jane Brontë

I am the only being whose doom
No tongue would ask no eye would mourn
I never caused a thought of gloom
A smile of joy since I was born

In secret pleasure - secret tears
