If Thou Shalt Love Me - Poem by Eloida Capuno

be generous with praises
i want to be appreciated
every now and then

be as gentle as a breeze
caress me like the morning mist
i long for tenderness

be acerbic with words
when i am stupid
be my strength when i am weak

be not fooled by my nonchalance
i care more than you seem to know
the image is just for show

love me if you dare
put up with my eccentricities
don't try to understand

just love me
like you never meant
for it to end.
