Ana Castillo quote #79 from I Ask the Impossible

I ask the impossible love me forever.Love me when all desire is gone.Love me with the single mindedness of a monk.When the world in its entiretyand all that you hold sacred advise youagainst it love me still more.When rage fills you and has no name love me.When each step from your door to our job tires you--love me and from job to home again love me love me.Love me when youre bored--when every woman you see is more beautiful than the lastor more pathetic love me as you always havenot as admirer or judge but withthe compassion you save for yourselfin your solitude.Love me as you relish your lonelinessthe anticipation of your deathmysteries of the flesh as it tears and mends.Love me as your most treasured childhood memory--and if there is none to recall--imagine one place me there with you.Love me withered as you loved me new.Love me as if I were forever--and I will make the impossiblea simple actby loving you loving you as I do
