Self Love

Self love
the kind of love
that starts inside
at first just subtly
then builds upon itself
until it echoes out
to all infinity

Self love
the kind of love
that is required
if we ever hope
to love another true
for all we say and do
begins with this

Self love
as soft as satin sighs
a gentle breath of lullabies
and too, a silent, screaming roar
the power behind all hours
of a life that's truly lived

To love one's self
is to open to
the love of all that is
and thus this feeling grows
from inside out
returning time and time again
to heart

One heart that beats
with love . . .
