Treat one another with kindness,
Shower each other with love,
Be not stingy with this emotion,
You’ve a bottomless trove.
The word love is tossed around, as though something important,
The translation of I love You is, you’re fulfilling a need of mine.
It’s not to be disheartening, just know it, choose to accept,
The only love that’s pure, is to us from The Divine.
If you do good for people to like you,
Know that you’re as important as the fancy wrapping on a gift.
What benefit is derived, matters to the recipient most,
You’ll be kept as a memory, if not immediately tossed.
Don’t let it dishearten you, just beware of the fact,
Life is constantly changing, no likes remain intact.
Why not have the gift, and wrapper both, for The Lord,
At least from loving you, He won’t get bored.
The game of distance I’ve to learn to play
I so do care but often shouldn’t say
Relations are weird in that funny way
You’re in my heart, yet still at bay
When I come close you pull away
When I am distant I feel astray
I want to say yes, but comes out a nay
I’ll quit the drama and by self I’ll stay
