The Gift of Self-Love

My Greatest Lover - a Poem

My Greatest Lover

Have you seen yourself lately?
Flicking sand from your toes,
Sitting in your decadent pose,
Chatting with sincere prose.

What do I see?
Jiggling as you're giggling,
Prancing as you're dancing,
Shining as you're smiling.

Do you remember?
Giving your loving hand,
Sharing your favourite band,
Being the one to understand.

What are your traits?
Cooking every morning,
Seeing all as adoring,
Failing to be boring.

Have you seen your soul?
Running through the mountains,
Savouring the planets plantains,
Pouring love like endless fountains.

What's in it for me?
Nothing really,
I simply admire your dignity,
I simply delight in your divinity.

Please don't deny me,
I'm your greatest lover,
I'm like no other.

Please say you hear me,
I'm your best friend,
I'm here until the end.

Here's the secret:
I'm your heart,
We'll never be apart.
