I don't need to be loved

I don’t need to be loved, though it helps.

My certain feeling that I love, and that it’s not a futile thing

or wasted in the emptiness of her not knowing

means that I think of it with joy. My heart

is filled with love, and I feel good about it.

If she was not there, and real, and lovable,

then I would not have the feeling,

but I do, and it is good!

Love is a natural, healthy state, and one I know,

which brings me happiness and has no need

for more, that she may not have to give.
