“You Love Me!”
By Melanie Cope

Beaverton Poet

– Honorable Mention Winner Valentine’s Contest.

You love me when I’m unlovable,

You love me when I am unkind,

You love me when I am selfish and I act as though everything’s mine

You love me when my tongue spews hate


But wait!

You look deeper and see,

that these things,

spring from the old man,

The one that’s still inside,

Yet you lovingly and graciously,

Continue to renew my mind

And you show me how to love

And how to control my tongue,

Which, unlike the horse

Has never been tamed

Yet I call on your name,

Through which all things

I can do,

Because you love me

And I can’t deny that

I love you!
