My dearest sweet, succulent man,
Listen closely as best you can.
I'll not be, your maid nor servant,
If you can't tell, you're not observant.
I will not bow to you, you're not above,
But side by side, it's you I'll love.
My loyalty and devotion is indeed true,
My heart, my body, I'll give to you.
But should you abuse me, disrespect,
I then will slowly, you, reject.
If you want my love in every way,
Do not demand that I obey,
Your every want, wish, command,
Do not to me, raise your hand,
To strike in anger or in rage,
For I will then from you, disengage.
Do not confine me nor try to control,
For if you do, there'll be a toll,
A truly most expensive cost,
My love for you will then be lost.
Speak to me from your heart,
From your most important part.
Perfection's not what I expect from you,
But rather show me the real and true.
You'll be my king if I'm your queen.
No one else shall come between.
Mistakes will be made by us both,
But they needn't destroy our solemn oath.
As long as we each as together we live,
Let go of grudges and install "forgive".
We must keep alive what drew us together,
As long as we do, the worst we can weather.
Your hopes, your dreams, I'll share with you,
With equal desire that they come true.
Your secrets I'll keep, take to my grave,
As you must mine, preserve and save.
Your pain I'll share. You'll never be alone,
My happiness will depend upon your very own.
I'll be your lover. I'll be your wife.
I'll be your partner throughout my life.
I will be your most trusted friend,
I'll love you forever without end.

Poet note: To truly Love another, one must Love with all of themselves, be forgiving so each other's mistakes
aren't kept tallied, be accepting and respectful of who each is as a person without expecting them to change,
hold onto that which drew them together, nurture and build on trust in and loyalty to each other, support each
other's dreams and goals, when times get tough hold onto each other more tightly, and last but not least, keep
the romance alive and fresh, never take each other for granted, and always make each other know how special
and important they are, because they are. ♥
On the flip side, however, Love is never about being abused in any way, shape, or form, whether it be physically,
emotionally, or both. Love is not about control, jealousy, possession, obsession, etc.. If these are present with
either partner or both, it is not true Love with whichever or both expressing these. It is important to recognise
abuse and then to remove oneself from it. Remember, to Love and respect someone else, one must first Love
and respect oneself. ♥
