When you love somebody, life’s too short – take it with a grain of salt,
Walk ever so closely by my side – or don’t walk with me at all.

Go ahead - look into my eyes! Can you see how I truly feel?

My love for you is pure and genuine – yes, it’s 100 per cent real.

Don’t try to make me jealous – to make yourself feel good,

Don’t second guess my love for you – if you do, you’ll be a fool.

If we are out together – don’t be afraid to hold my hand,

I couldn’t be happier to be by your side - you are a beautiful man.

Please, don’t judge me with my life - and things you know nothing about,

Please, support me in everything – don’t leave me any room for doubt.

If you can’t love me with all your heart – well, I guess that’s fine,

But, please, do me a favor – and don’t go breaking mine.

I am not a child, so – don’t go treating me as such,

I was down that road, for many years – and, honestly, I’ve had enough.

I’m not about glistening diamonds – expensive fancy furs and pearls,

A t- shirt and jeans is good for me – I’m just an ordinary girl.

And let’s not look at arguments – as being lost or won,

We’re adults so I think its best - to concentrate on making up.

Don’t shush me in my faith – you’ve no right - to judge the way I feel,

While our beliefs may differ- I’ll always believe - that heaven & Jesus are real.

Don’t get brave enough to beat or abuse me – I love you way too much,

I’m a woman who loves you, whole heartedly – I’ll never forget your aggressive touch.

Please, don’t make me promises – you know you cannot keep,

Please, don’t find it in you to break my heart – please, don’t make me weep.

Don’t take life too serious – always make time for play,

Don’t feel the need to play with my emotions – or ever lead me astray.

Look into my eyes everyday – and know the love that you see is for you,

I want to hold you tight even in hard times – and get lost in your beautiful hues.

When you love somebody, life’s too short – take it with a grain of salt,

Walk ever so closely by my side – or don’t walk with me at all.

I have many blessings in my life – I have everything I need,

It makes me nauseous and I despise - anyone with greed.

Please, don’t belittle me – in front of family and friends,

If this is something that empowers you - our relationship will surely end.

Please, don’t try to be my master – because I am not a dog,

I don’t take orders of any kind – and I don’t care to fetch a ball.

Let’s go to a movie or for a drive – or maybe a walk through the park,

Let’s walk hand in hand in the warmth of the sun – or under the moon light after dark.

It’s important to make time for us – no matter how busy your day,

And please, be honest at all times – in everything you do and say.

If you think you want somebody else – don’t be afraid to tell me so,

You’re not the first one in my life – I’ve ever had to let go.

You may fool me once fool me twice – maybe you’ll fool me several times,

I have been through too much eventually I will have taken enough,

And I will say bye – bye.

A poem that asks for nothing more than respect. Anyone that won't give that, and there are so many, is not worth the emotion. Nice write.

Something that is so simple yet so difficult, for many. Thanks, hullabaloo22!
