Universal Plea...




Love me…not for who you wish that I would be
But love me because it is enough that I am me

Love me…not because of some grand and virtuous deed
But because love is within us, a never-ending need

Love me…just as I am without criticism or complaint
But simply because I am me, love without restraint

Love me…not for what you hope is yet to be
But simply in this moment, because you are you and I am me

Love me…in spite of everything that I am not
Love me, not in forced action but in the out-pouring of thought

Love me…not for who you wish that I would be
But just because you are you and I am me
