Love

“Love one another as I have loved you.”

It’s not about the feeling 

but what you do. 

It’s the willingness 

to stop what you’re doing

to listen

to see with the eyes of your heart

what is etched in the face of another. 

We speak of love 

as a feeling but

really, it’s a drive

a force 

for bettering. 

Imagination is the key

to love:

you must imagine yourself 

in the shoes of another

and then love

will prompt you to

what is 

Next.
