No Body Will Ever Love Me Like I love Me
How do we love another?
How is the heart brought into the true light of unconditional love?
Is it perchance that we stare into the eyes of another and you know that it is soul to soul?
Does she make you smile, or do you feel the pain of the past still and hang on leaving a large empty hole?
The truth in unconditional love lies within the realm of loving oneself before another.
Conceited as this may sound, before you can truly love, one must love self before sister or brother.
Yet now as 4 am approaches I look into the eyes of Jan and I see the pureness of true love.
Her eyes shine like the light of the rising sun; her eyes and heart as it beats upon my chest tells me my life is whole and not undone.
Her smile could calm the tempest of a raging sea…her love is true as she strives to please.
Therefore I can conclude; how can I really love her if I were to hate me?
For love is unselfish; love is giving and kind.
Love between two people encompasses the entirety of both body and mind.
So yes, I do love me which allows me to love each and all of you.
For if I hated myself, then I would care not of other things or of what people do.
So you see, it’s ok to love yourself, for within this, you and you alone hold the key.
