Looking For Love

There have always been guidelines

Written within my heart

About what love is supposed to be

Most important there must be love returned

There must be shared laughter

And even shared tears

There must be honesty

And respect freely given

No need to be perfect

For we are all flawed

But willingness to overlook it

It is really quite small

Basic human kindness

Is also a must

Someone who hurts others

I just cannot trust

So why do I have

Such trouble finding hope

Because so few are faithful

And with that I can’t cope

I want to be noticed

Loved like they mean it

Up until now

They have all been deceiving
