Love, Me



Who you are

How resilient you can be

How strong you are

How capable you let go.

Who’s on your side
How faithful you can be
How powerful you are
How capable you love.

For Jingle Poetry on Love, Bond, and Relationship

For my hubby and kiddos. I love you!

“Will somebody somewhere please love me?

Will somebody somewhere please love me?”

A plea for love written in the diary

of Madalyn Murray O’ Hair,

founder and president of American Atheist

who fought for the removal of prayers in American public schools.

Why did she pleaded when she could instead believe?

Instead love.

Instead pick a flower.

And could have known from the petals,

“He loves me! He loves me not a doubt!

He loves me! He loves me not a doubt!

He loves me! He loves me not a doubt!”

For everyone. Happy Valentine’s Day! I hope I can send you flowers today.

    wonderful post. in place of pleading we should be making the choice- you are so right.

    • bendedspoon Says:

      And why is something that is meant to make us smile made us plead sometimes? I remember asking myself with that and I think it’s because I did not remember who I am; that I had a choice.

  3. Beautiful piece, these are things we should all remember. Happy Potluck!

    Such a great reminder that we truly have to love ourselves, too! (And maybe love ourselves *best*, yes?) I am a sucker for Disney songs! So many good ones, and this is definitely up there in the top few. Thanks for posting it, and I enjoyed your poem. ๐Ÿ™‚

    • bendedspoon Says:

      Thank you! I learned that we got to love and honor ourselves that we may sincerely do the same to others.

      I think each Disney movie has a song that touches the heart and my kiddos sometimes see my tears fall and they wonder

      Have a happy day ๐Ÿ™‚

    Wonderful words!!!

    To take away something, anyone can do that.
    To give something, is the most powerful thing we can do.

    happy valentines day! Take care Alan.

    • bendedspoon Says:

      Thank you Alan for bringing that one up!
      We need all the power there is to give love — sustainable love. That’s why I’m tapping to the Source of love. Can’t do it on my own.
      Enjoy heart’s day with the one you love! ๐Ÿ™‚
