Unconditional Love

When I was a child
It was easy to love
and not expect
I was loved
all the same

When I was a gal
It was easy to love
but expectations crept in
and I was loved
all the same

When I was a lady
It seemed easy to love
and to expect -a right
There was love
all the same

Now a woman
Its a dream to love
and not to expect
Where is love ?
I ask, in shame.

Unconditional Love
An oxymoron to me :)
