Choose loved ones as you become smart

Making those choices life becomes art

No expectations of what you’ll receive

It’s all about giving serving needs


For many it is all about lust

Not about honor adoring trust

Other’s not objects to own or possess

Not just a tool for your happiness


It’s giving freedom nurturing others to grow

Allowing their fullness presence and flow

Honoring cherishing what passes between

Mysterious emergence creations unseen


Allowing caring and being there

Providing guiding and being fair

Hoping for all they can be on this earth

Not for your pleasure or your self-worth


Be totally present to what they need

Listen for wishes and how you might feed

Respect be tolerant acknowledge their presence

Promote in all ways their profound essence


No matter the distance no matter the time

No matter the reason or if there’s a rhyme

The gift passes quickly please pay attention

Enable loving it’s a noble dimension


Can you add more ways of loving to what you already do?

Who else might you love and how might you love differently?

How about yourself?
