True love

by cricketjeff on December 20, 2008.  © Jeff Green, All rights reserved

I never want my love to take away,
Your happiness is everything and more.
I want to treat you right in every way,
The little things you love I shall adore.

I’ll never try to keep you from your friends
Nor tell you how you ought to live your life;
Such jealousy is not what love portends,
I want to make a friend not own a wife.

I offer you no selfish fits of rage,
I want to see you smile and never cry.
The story that I’d write upon each page
Is simple happiness for you and I.

A perfect love would always set you free,
To be the person you were meant to be.
