Love Without Conditions

So stay close to me darling. Keep your eyes wide open. Forgive me, when I test you often. Be patient when I over analyze, And freak out over nothing.

 Wishes come and go
 like trickling waters
 in the streams of consciousness
 or like musical notes
 made from trees in the wind.
  
 I close my eyes 
 and think of you often.
  
 How I wish I could have given you
 the girl I once was.
 The pretty naïve one
 so neat and tidy and clean.
 She doesn’t exist anymore.
 She died long ago.
  
 And this girl you see here
 is not a girl
 But a warrior Viking queen
 who has lost a few limbs
 metaphorically along the way.
  
 They were dreams and possible children.
 A home and a husband.
 A life someone invented
 so they could go on living.
 All lies really. Truth has a funny way
 of sneaking up on you when you’re not looking.
  
 So stay close to me darling.
 Keep your eyes wide open.
 Forgive me, when I test you often.
 Be patient when I over analyze, 
 And freak out over nothing.
  
 Love me darling
 as I love you.
 Respectfully
 graciously
 openly
 accepting you fully
 without conditions.
 Learning constantly. 
 Sometimes our flaws,
 are the best parts of ourselves.
