"Just The Way.You Are" (c)-2017
Poetry By Michael D Dowdy


I love you , just the way you are
with all your faults & sins
I'm not sacred off  (by your rebellious attitude)
I'm not worried about  (your past  mistakes)
I'm not going anywwhere- (except into your waiting arms)
I love you baby, yes i do
just the way, you are
just the way, you are


Ive been torn into pieces
Ive been ripped to shreds
for my past mistakes & sins
Ive been rejected
Ive been disrespected
ive been abused
and taken- for granted
too times, for far too long
never feeling like i belonged
except by you, my darling
yes, i know, so have you!
I love you baby, yes i do
just the way, you are
just the way, you are




I'm not perfect, and i know
yes, ive known it- neither are you
we have our emotional scars
we made plenty of mistakes
we have our fair share
-of sins & regrets
we have both  been-(torn to pieces)
by  family ,friends & lovers
i dont understand, why we even bothered
-to try to reach out to them
when they refuse to treat us, respectfully
I love you baby, yes i do
just the way, you are
just the way, you are



Ive been torn into pieces
Ive been ripped to shreds
for my past mistakes & sins
Ive been rejected
Ive been disrespected
ive been abused
and taken- for granted
too times, for far too long
never feeling like i belonged
except by you, my darling
yes, i know, so have you!
I love you baby, yes i do
just the way, you are
just the way, you are



Ive seen the best of you
Ive seen the worst of you
you have seen (the best of me)
you have seen (the worst of me)
i love you baby
just the way, you are
and i know, you love me too
just the way, i am
just the way, i am



Ive been torn into pieces
Ive been ripped to shreds
for my past mistakes & sins
Ive been rejected
Ive been disrespected
ive been abused
and taken- for granted
too times, for far too long
never feeling like i belonged
except by you, my darling
yes, i know, so have you!
I love you baby, yes i do
just the way, you are
just the way, you are
and i know, you love me
just the way, I am
just the way, I am


Ive been torn into pieces
Ive been ripped to shreds
for my past mistakes & sins
Ive been rejected
Ive been disrespected
ive been abused
and taken- for granted
too times, for far too long
never feeling like i belonged
except by you, my darling
yes, i know, so have you!
I love you baby, yes i do
just the way, you are
just the way, you are
