Loving the World

Our lonely neighbor, Kasha

Did you once dream a dream
of sharing your life
with someone who never
arrived?


Do you sometimes feel 
lonely,
always the person who 
arrives and leaves
every gathering
alone?


Have you learned
love comes in
many different forms,
and is always 
all around you?

Get ready
to love
the whole world,
kids.
There is a planet full
of lonely old ones,
neglected children,
and homeless animals
just waiting for
your love.

Find yourself one,
or two, or three,
and shine the warmth 
of your limitless heart
on their 
bottomless need.

  13. What a beautiful 'poster child' to portray your heart in these wish to be universal thoughts and feelings. We're in this raft in this vast ocean of tides and swales together. The heart of my soul is intertwined with yours, mi amiga.
