If you love

If you love your children,
Give them love,
Lest you become the toy,
A plaything,
To be discarded,

If you love yourself so much,
Look in the mirror,
See your wrinkles grow.
Give that love to someone,
Who needs it more than you,
Your face will start to glow

If you love me so much,
Do not tell me what to do,
I am who I am,
You are who you are,
So let me be as I am,
I shall leave you, as you are.

I guess that is what love is all about. Acceptance of what one is. Yet we want to change all that we love about the person. I wonder why?
Well written and quite sublime indeed!
