Did you ever meet someone who was never satisfied with anything you did? Did you ever love someone who didn’t love you back? Did you ever try too hard to make someone love you? Or maybe your expressions of love were ignored or caused resentment.  Go ahead and write about it!  I did.

Deserving Love

What can I do
to deserve your love?
Send you more presents?
Agree with you?
Defend you?
Pray for you?
What can I do to deserve your respect?
Flatter you?
Be silent?
Genuflect to your ideas?
Let you lie to me?
I am deserving of His love,
without your approval.
Because I am
His creation.
Try as you may,
You can’t spoil that.
