poem

I came across this poem today. I wrote it back in May, thinking of Dwain:

Will you love me this way?
Will you love me by thinking of me?
In the middle of a thought
In the middle of the night
Will you think of me?

Will you love me this way?
Will you love me by asking how I am
And listening to the answer?
By asking about the little things
And the big things
In my life
And wanting to know the answer?

Will you love me this way?
Will you love me by thinking of me
When you see something I might like,
Will you love me by telling me about it?

Will you love me this way?
Will you love me by asking what I'd like to do
By thinking about what I might like
And then by doing it?

Will you love me by noticing me
By noticing my life
By noticing my smile
By noticing my eyes
My eyes wanting to trust you
Wanting to love you?

Will you love me this way?
Will you love me by tending to me
As I tend to you?

I want to love you this way
Can you will you love me this way?

It isn't a good poem, I know that. But the thoughts in it are thoughts I had a lot of, and that, I think, were telling.
