To Love Thyself: C. Fay Shlanda

I have enjoyed the love of another
Had the unyielding love of a mother
Love that is kind
One that was blind
A fiery feeling no one could smother

I have been witness to a love so true
Watched them in awe from afar as it grew
A love so fair
Without a care
Unaware of those enjoying the view

There is a love that I have yet to feel
So personal a kind it’s hard to deal
A love so rare
Not easy to bear
Loving yourself you can’t force to be real
