The Beginning Of Love

Starts With You

How can you love another ?

Until you love yourself ?

There is only one person who we get to know inside and out

Our life started some time ago

From the day we were born

We were given a loving start

To live a life in a body that would carry us through all our journeys

As we grew older we learned about the world and how we function

Slowly going through every possible situation that would change our life forever

Each affecting our personality and who we will become

Developing physically as well as mentally

Realizing how important it is to take care of our bodies

Accidents and issues of both body and mind can develop over time

It is up to us to see that we fix and make our life better

So our future may be promising and have great potential

Living our dreams and sharing our life with others

Spreading the love that we have practiced

Once again the cycle continues

Where we can all do our part

Making life wonderful right from the start

We got to know ourselves for anyone else. Love can be controlling at times. I like the way you put these words in such a beautiful poem.

DDE We learn so much in our life but it wouldn't matter if it wasn't with love. I am very fortunate to grow up in a very loving family. Thank you for reading and commenting.

Most lovely sentiments. I think love is an emotion which most often gives us positive feelings like happiness and the want to be with and share our lives with one significant other.

Gypsy Rose Lee Feeling good about ourselves and sharing that feeling with someone very special makes such a beautiful relationship. Caring for someone else so much to see they are happy and working together for dual goals and strive for more happiness in the future. Thank you for reading and sharing. I woke up to a page of your lovely comments. It is snowing outside and you made all the snow disappear. Your caring outlook on life makes me warm inside.
