*****
When I say I love you,
Trust me I mean it,
But it doesn’t imply what you think.

When I say I love you,
I want to spend most of my time with you,
But not all, be not mistaken.

When I say I love,
It’s not a call to take me for granted
Or to believe I’ve become your emotional slave.

When I say I love you,
Don’t take it wrong dear beloved.
I can still love other people
But not the way you think.

When I say I love you,
It doesn’t mean that we’ve become clones.
Neither does it mean that I buy all your views.

When I say I love you,
You can still be yourself and I myself.
And together we’ll embrace our differences.

When I say I love you,
It doesn’t mean I quit myself.
I want to have the freedom to be.
