Look at me with honesty
And I promise to do the same
Speak to me sincerely
And I will return the favor threefold
I want and need reality with gentleness
I accept the harshness that is there
And I am not a coward, I can look at it
And not turn away, but a steady diet
Of hard reality is too much for this
Delicate stomach, so give me truth
But give it to me with kindness
Allow that gentle aura of hope to surround
The real that is too real to face day in and day out
Yes, look at me with honesty
Talk to me of truth
But temper it with love
And I will be forever grateful

very honest piece
Reviewed by Sandie Angel 4/20/2003
I agree, sometimes honesty is the best policy. I especially like these following lines:

"Talk to me of truth
But temper it with love
And I will be forever grateful"

Gracefully-written indeed!
