In Love (At Thirty) - Poem by Makarand Paranjape

To make even one single person happy,
To love her completely, to give her without restraint
All that you could if your were God himself;
Or to love, even a plant, an animal,
Any piece of life; to nurture it,
To care, to have tenderness for someone else;
Even to do this just once, fully and entirely,
Is to fulfill one's life and find heaven afterwards.

[From The Serene Flame]
