Love Me

by Jon Dunnemann


Love me like ivy
wrapped around a tree.

Love me like a child
placed upon your knee

Love me with that
same exuberance you felt
when you finally learned to ski.

Love me on all levels,
from top to bottom.

Love me by assuring me
that I'll never be forgotten.

Love me without need,
beyond limit.

Love me under pressure,
without the slightest hesitation.

Love me like there's no tomorrow,
and well above your station.

Love me for loves sake,
without having a reason.

Go on and love me,
no matter the season.

Love me deeply,
yet ever deeper still.

Oh surely you know
that when you love me,
it gives me such an amazing thrill.
