Love me & mind not the colour of my skin,

My age, class & naïvete.

Love me wholeheartedly for who I am

For the sooth is my love for you is true.

Love me as I love you infinitely

& with redemancy – with the all of you.

Love me with the vibrancy of your natural way

For your pulchritude alone aglows my world.

Love me without condition & seek not excuse

To escape from this divine love.

Love me for my heart belongs to you

And show the world ours is an undying love.

Love me & dulcetly sing me a song

Sweet & soothing; lullabies at night

As your fingers brush over by chest

As we both count the stars in the sky.
