If You Ask Me What Love Is... - Poem by Vijaiya Ramkissoon

Feeling the pain of another person
more than they themselves feel it...
its rejoicing in their smile and
experiencing the beauty in the music
of their laughter and feeling the
warmth of their touch.
Its discovering new hope for the future,
walking side by side with each other,
touching lives and ensuring that
there will be a tomorrow.
It’s wanting the very best
for another person despite
the journey to be crossed,
distance to be walked or sacrifice to be made.
It’s sharing thoughts and ideas
and expressing feelings.
It’s a hug, a smile, a word of encouragement...
It’s picking up another person when they fall,
helping them to see the sun on the rainiest day
and the moon on the darkest night.
It’s learning to quit finding faults in another person.
It’s seeing beyond imperfections.
It’s accepting another person for “them”
and not for what YOU want them to be.
It’s being true to yourself and being true to others.
Its an unconditional care....
Without hoping for anything in return..
It’s that which words cannot even begin to explain...


Bless! !
