Fall in love with Me when I am nothing and no one
When I have nothing and may not seem all that you imagined me to be…
Hold a curiosity for Me.
Fall in love with Me when all that I am is still mystery,
When life’s memory of Me says little of who I am or will ever be.
Fall in love with Me –
as I am when I arrive.
Find beauty in my nakedness and the guise
of all that I seem not to be.
Fall in love with Me.
Don’t dress me in possibility because I hold your dreams in my hands,
Try not to enchant yourself with such intricate plans
nor find comfort in title, position, or name,
Don’t distract yourself with ideas of gain
Rather love me raw and unrefined,
a mystery left undefined
A flower, I will bloom for you
for in loving Me,
you are loving you.
