Please Let Me Love You
by Karen Robertson
Please let me love you, surrender your heart and give
me at least one chance to prove to you how I feel.
Please let my love show you all the ways in my heart,
that my love for you is so right and so real.
Please allow me to open my heart's fragile doors and embrace
you, holding you close to me.
Please let me demonstrate that my love can give your
heart wings and set you free.
Please let me prove my worthiness that I will never hurt
you like you've been hurt so many times before.
Please lend me your heart even if just for a moment and
together in love, on the wings of passion to the heavens
in ecstasy we will soar.
Please don't be afraid to accept my love, please don't
push me away. If you let me in your life, I will prove to
you my love will never fade, and as long as you still want
me, I promise by your side I will stay.
Please try to understand that I cannot change how I feel
for you overnight. I love you and that is simply a fact.
Please know that as I gaze up at the first stars of the evening,
and wish that you were still mine, my salty tears are shining
in the soft moonlight.
Please let me love you, for no matter how far apart or how
different our relationship may be, we are meant to be
together and this I pray that you will soon see.
Please just love me, for this is all I'll ever ask, and in return,
I'll always love you right back.
Dedicated to Dustin, 'cuz I just can't stop loving you.
