One of my favorite poets posted this poem today. It touched my heart and I wanted to share it with you. Thank you Aarthi! http://sickocean.wordpress.com/2012/12/26/being/#respond
for someone we love
we can be
the best of the needs, of love of life
what beautiful essence of life
is hidden in the moments when
you smile not for your own but for someone else
your love forever increases in amount
you grow all the more still and calm
you forgive and forget the greatest of harms
its the serenity of love when
you are holding someone to save
in empty moments their voice you crave
and when indeed life offers you a chance
you run away and hug them
singing to their heart your precious song
is to love someone
so much beyond yourself
perhaps to an extent that
you forget your own pains
and their wounds make you cry…

A searing poem.
Their needs make you cry … mercy, I really feel that bit. Their needs make you cry…
