The Other Side of Loves w

I’ve never known the sweetest of love.

Love without fear.

Love without hesitation.

But you are teaching me.

I’ve taught myself to love me.

I’ve taught myself to only need my love.

But you are teaching me to love all of me,

And give that love to you.

What a beautiful thing it is,

To be loved,

And be loved back.

Rain or Snow

Past full of sorrow, but his eyes shed no tears.

Hungry for success. Driven, without fear.

Eager to learn and built upon lessons.

Lover of The Lord, knowledgable of His blessings.

A commanding presence, that could bring any room to attention.

A smile that illuminates in darkness, easing any questioning intentions.

A heart so willing to serve others, without a second thought.

A soul made of gold from many hardships fought.

Deserving of taking so much more, he is.

But rooted in the knowledge that in this life, it is more fulfilling to give.

Guarded to the core is his only deception.

Quick to observe if he is just a fleeting obsession.

Unjust is it to try to describe,

This man who came into my life quickly, and altered it, by surprise.

All the words in the world are not enough to illustrate him.

But he inspires me to attempt to with this ballpoint pen.

If there is one thing I want him to know,

I’m right beside him, rain or snow.

Self Love

Love yourself,
Fiercely and unapologetically.

Because no one is capable of loving you,
like you can. 

Cultivate your talents,
And share them with the world.

Take care of your body,
So you can see more sunsets. 

Say yes to alone time,
Because sometimes serenity comes in the form of solitude. 

Choose you.
Be you.
Love you.

Because the more you love you, the more love you have to share with the world.
