What love means to me

I am only loving someone
Who will love me also
Not for any superficial reason
But a person who recognises
These immaterial things
And those that money
Could never replace
I like someone to be honest
I need a person I can trust
Not a-fly-by-night person
A friend for life
Someone who says
What they mean
And mean what they say
Innate things can never
be replaced by wily words
deceit or pretence
what I have and am
I am proud of
I am unique and committed
To what is just and right
In that I show no guilt or remorse
If I can find a kindred Spirit
then let that
Soul-mate love me
