Love is Acceptance – Written January 2004 (Aged 28)

Love is Acceptance

love is acceptance
of who we are
it is not hurtful honesty
it is the capturing
of beautiful fantasy
and working hard to create a future
no so much a roadmap
with certain directions
just the paths we could take
with many locations
where we could take a break
you may think that i am wrong
but who is say that you are right
when you tell me that you love me
when you hold me tight
i do not need the harshness
a lack of light
i do not want pretence
but as i said at the beginning
love is acceptance
it is a shared dream happily swimming

James Garratt – January 2004
