Be love

Be love in the morning, the eyes that crinkle the first warm smile of the day
Be love when you fix your children's breakfast, pour into it with kindness
Be love when you feel tired, when you are sore and achy from the night

Be love as you leave your home, and reflect on all that is gifted to you
Be love as you walk down your street and gaze into the living rooms of those less fortunate
Be love to the old man who is always out mucking around his yard

Be love in your workplace, though you are tired of being taken advantage of
Be love when you make the coffee again, though you are the last one in
Be love to all the children that do not get it enough at home

Be love to the animals who get left outside all day long in the rain
Be love to the friend who is lost and lonely
Be love to the friend who claims they need no one

Be love when you cuddle to your loved one at the end of the day
Be love when you take out the garbage or similar mundane tasks
Be love when love is the furthest thing from your mind

Be love when it hurts to
when you are afraid you can't anymore

Make the choice to be love....and love will surely come back to you

I wrote this for myslef this morning. As a reminder of who I want to be. It is inspired by the song called "Be love" by Plus one.

That's beautiful baby. If only we could all do that all the time - the world would be a much nicer place.
