All I Or Anyone Asks

All I Ask Of You

Some love songs more than others touch us and haunt us, I think, because they speak to what most of us, if not all of us, want more than anything else. This song says that so plainly:

“Love me, that’s all I ask of you.”

I remember a popular song as barely a teenager that spoke to my teenaged angst. It said, “Oh, Lord, please don’t let me be misunderstood.” But I was and we all have had our motives and actions mistook and wrongly taken as well as we have those of others.

We all need to love and to feel loved. Sometimes, I think, we want and need that even more than air, water, or food to eat. And when we get the chance to feel the fullness of love given and received it is so good. As James Brown, once called the hardest working man in Rock and Roll, sang:

“So good, so good ‘cause I’ve got you!”

As a poet, let me take a shot at that too.

All We Ask

In every one of us

There is a deep abiding need

To love as we were made to,

To be loved in return we plead.

In every one of us

Though we may show it differently

All we ask or ever will

Is just to love and to be.

Your friend and fellow traveler,

Feel the love,

David White

    1. As writers we sow the seeds of our truth in hope that some will grow into flowers that brighten if even for a moment the lives of others. Thank you for your kind feed back, dear friend and fellow traveler.
