If You Want To Be Loved Poem by Practicing Poetess

If You Want To Be Loved

Rating: 4.5

If you want to be loved
(And we all do) ,
You gotta pay the price
You gotta make the sacrifice.

This journey that is shared,
It sure beats loneliness.
You must consider two,
Not only think of you.

You learn to compromise,
The art of give-and-take.
Can't always have your way,
If you want love to stay.

Recall how rich your life
Is now, because of him
Be willing to try something new,
Do the things he likes to do.

Surprise him, tantalize him,
And please him, and tease him.
Remembering all the while
How good it is to see him smile.

Your words are really true. Yes to sustain relationship we need to understand give and take art. You just made words look much better compromise as give and take art... beautiful.

A beautiful poem on good relationship. It is not a one way traffic. Good understanding between two persons makes the bond of love stronger. Very nicely done. Thanks for sharing.

What a wonderful poem. It is a compromise. It can't be all about you. When we give and make someone happy, it feels good! I really enjoyed reading this!
