Taking That Breath

Take A Breath


Open the mind.
Feel the love,
Take the time.
Express the emotions,
That bind us together,
Make it stronger,
Then it will last forever.

Express the thoughts that you don't like others to know.
True expression is what binds the soul.
Only you can truly understand what hides deep within.
Finding that happiness which is hidden can only then,
Help you understand what it takes to share it with a friend.

Always remember the places where you choose to be,
Our eyes do not just help us see,
It is a gateway for understanding the differences,
Which helps create you and me.

Opening up those hidden gems which define how you feel,
Letting one see all that is real.
This is the only way each of you can seal –
Those bonds of affection.

There will always come a time for understanding and attention.
Forging that place in the heart for love and compassion.

Now take that breath.
Allow yourself to opening your mind.
Always giving and receiving love,
Making time to share attention can only begin,
Strengthening those bonds of affection.

      YOU ARE RIGHT ON THE MONEY. YOU ANSWER YOUR OWN QUESTION. TRUE............ LOVE YOURSELF FIRST AND THEN BE FRIENDS AND UNDERSTAND ONE ANOTHER AND GROW TO LOVE OTHERS.
