Patience With Loving Me

Santajah Douglass

I need you to be patient with me,

For I am sometimes oblivious, you see.

I just don't understand the signs,

Of love that may be right in front of me.

I'm a lover at heart, when I decide to love,

I give my all, my entire heart, like a dove.

But with so many different types of guys around,

It's hard to know if true love is what I've found.

Most of the time, it's platonic, we're just friends,

I can never tell if the flirting truly never ends.

Is he into me for real, or just joking around?

It's confusing, it's frustrating, it's like being bound.

Being straightforward doesn't always work,

I need your patience, your guidance, like a mentor.

If you like me, please take me out,

Hold my hand, show me what love is about.

Be patient with me, help me understand,

Your feelings towards me, like walking on sand.

I may be naive, I may be blind,

But with your help, true love I may find.

When I love, I give my all,

I'm there to catch you if you fall.

There won't be a day you're ever sad,

I'll wipe away your tears, make you glad.

There won't be a day you're not mad,

I'll listen, I'll understand, I'll never leave you sad.

You have to be patient with me,

Help me see the love that could be.

Guide me, hold me, show me the way,

To walk the path of love each day.

When I love, I love with all of me,

I'll be there for you, forever free.

So be patient, be kind, be true,

And together, we'll make our love shine through.
