Loving Someone

The purpose of loving someone

is not to be loved in return,

as love is something abundant

that stems from inside of you,

which you are gifting to another person.

Your self-love is a well within you

incapable of being emptied,

and love is a never-ending flame,

incapable of being put out.

It is not something

that you get or earn,

it is not something

that you must search for in the hope of one day finding,

and it is not something

that you lack

and must extract from another person,

but something you may share and radiate

as you are love.
