I Love You Just The Way You Are ~ A Poem

Rosemary is author of six books on mental health and inspirational poetry. She is a motivational speaker and a volunteer peer advocate.


I LOVE YOU just the way you are

But you gotta help me too!

This life is hard!

And I often fall and I often


I need you by my side

To be my companion and guide

And I will ever love and abide

With you too

I love you and accept you

For who you are

For your personality and quirks

And for all that comes along with you

I ask that you do the same for me

And may we bless each other

Like peanut butter and jelly

May we be a complete sandwich

Scroll to Continue

Together we can be...

Two heads better than one

Two hearts alive and well

Two souls united

Stay and fight this life with me

Be my battle companion

And let us enjoy this blessed earth

The creator's paradise

Flowers, trees, bird songs and bees

Drinking in sunsets- heaven

Long walks, inspirational and intellectual talks

Togetherness company

We don't require

Children, rules to follow, or a Church choir

To know and experience the love we already have and have had

God will work things out

He has a way somehow

I will trust in Him

But let our love begin

To flourish

Let us embrace each other

Without fear

Let God bless us

As He brought us together

Only He knows all the answers

I love you just the way you are

It may have taken awhile to figure it out

But from my heart I shout

"This one's for me!"

I love you just the way you are

Thank you.

God certainly belongs in any loving relationship. Getting to know and trust each other is the way to start a relationship and a way to keep it going.

Voted up, useful, and beautiful.
