I ask for no gestures of grandeur,
Nor declarations of love undying.
I want no proof of your heart’s desire,
Only that you stop the lying.
I need no gifts of silver or gold,
Nor bouquets of many hues.
I only ask that you speak truly,
And my trust you do not abuse.
I desire no letters of lover’s words,
Nor to hear your voice each day.
I only wish those soft tones of yours,
Are true in what they say.
I do not care if you have flaws unseen,
Or a complicated past.
I only pray you are true to me,
So this romance can last.
