Love me not because I look gorgeous in red with my hair tied in high ponytail and stilettos on my feet. Show affection to me when I feel blue or go through the worse. Appreciate me not because I have a heart-warming smile. Be compassionate when I am teary eyed as well. Ask me not what I want to do this Sunday but how I feel by Thursday or Friday night! Don’t, no; do not boast of me, if I am a scholar. Inspire me to be an achiever when I fail despite pouring in all my blood and sweat into a job! Do not expect me to be spirited and look after family all the time. Care for me, instead, when I need it the most. Not only be grateful when I listen to your stories. Reassure and lead me too to zenith.
Wave me a flying kiss every morning not because I serve you with delicious breakfast and pack you a lunch. Kiss me when I am weary, still. Kiss me every night not to have corporal pleasures. Let me sound sleep with my head on your torso and lighten up. Don’t baby shower me only when I am to become a mother, no matter how joyful I feel then. Be considerate when I couldn’t give birth to one.
Just do not overlook me when I am busy raising kids and not been able to pay attention to my bushed hair or splintered heels! Or, just do not be annoyed when I am hurrying up to meet that official commitment and not been able to make a cup of coffee for you. Never get angry when I forget where the heck I kept your favourite socks, but be sure that I washed and ironed your shirt, anyway. Don’t only be proud of me when I take care of your ill mother. Instead, support me too when I do the same for my parents who have only me as a child.
Do not be glad when I ask my dad to gift you a Volkswagen at wedding but be humble of the fact that I carry my pride with me when I walk into your beautiful home. Do not only feel pleased when I help you confide in me. Give me the confidence and allow me to share my deepest secrets with you too.
No just don’t expect me to be perfect. I am flawed and susceptible. I too need you as much as you need me, in fact, more! Only when you love me wholly at both my best and worst I could persevere through the challenges that life puts me to. You get to act the crutch when I tussle with sagging on my way to perfection.
However, do not take me wrong. It is not that I can’t do it alone but with you beside me, it becomes graceful.
So, please just don’t make love to me only when I am looking my best with flawless skin. Hug me tight when I am all over wrinkled and am fighting ageing.
Be my guiding light at every step along the ambiguous path of life.
Walk with me hand in hand until eternity!
With boundless love
