I have enjoyed everything ever desired and needed and am grateful beyond words. Through my own choices when seeking clarity in all that was around me, I lost all but self.
During my reflection in those times, I discovered these simple words which I found to be explanatory to what was needed. They were healing, albeit challenging for self as much as for the ones I loved. Even so, I decided to live fully by them, giving such love to all I would meet, not in hope of returns, but simply, to extend fully- unconditional love.
“Love me without fear
Trust me without questioning
Need me without demanding
Want me without restrictions
Accept me without change
Desire me without inhibitions
For a love so free…
Will never fly away.”
– Dick Sutphen
The finale of his words is the challenge. “For a love so free… Will never fly away.” A love so free is all each of us desires; To be accepted as we are, to be needed- to be loved.
The final sentence, is the hope, the reward, the tell in the request. It is; however, not a guarantee or a sure thing, but the relationship that arrives when each of us embraces the meaning, sincerely, with the all of who we are.
May each of us discover this love in ourselves and those we love,
forever and a day.
