How I Would Show My Love
by Sunday B. Fakus
Vividly I still remember the day
you asked me how I'd show my love.
I said I love you in so many ways
and I'd show you in these few ways.
I?d show my love by not hurting you,
by protecting you from all harms.
I?d show my love by committing to you,
dedicating my whole life to you.
I?d show my love by speaking the truth,
by being faithful, honest and true.
I?d show my love by meeting your needs,
fulfilling your wishes, your desires and dreams.
I?d show my love by being sympathetic to you,
sharing your pains, your shame and loss.
I?d show my love by forgiving you,
forgetting your sins, your failures and faults.
I?d show my love by protecting you,
defending you in each and every way.
I?d show my love by honoring you,
respecting you, even when you?re wrong.
And in all these ways I?d show my love
whether I'm young, or old and gray.
In life and death I?d show my love,
for you?re the only one my heart adores.
