Listen to me

That's what you said to me
That's all I could do for you
Think rationally
Remember to think of me
Look at who you are, not what your brain makes you see
Look at the sparkle in your eye, the way you shine when you see, see all the beauty and the way you love me
Feel my heart from afar
Feel what I feel
The way I touch
I can feel all of you
Embrace your heart for all that it is
Embrace the dark sides that hide within
Accept these words that flow from these lips
Accept it all
Every part,
Because baby, to me, you are beautiful,
The most beautiful of them all,
Shhh now sleep, just sleep and I'll be there for you in the dreamland, I'll take your hand, until the time comes that we no longer stand in this weary land.

Awh, thank you!(: it's nice that you noticed my punctuation too. I love free verse because I can do punctuation however I want.
