The Poetry of You

To love someone other than yourself
Is the highest form of loving yourself,

For you come to love all humanity
And humanity becomes you.

And the greatest part of you
Becomes a part of everyone you come to love.

We are here for a purpose.
And it lies outside of ourselves
And the Noble Ideals we share.

It lives and breathes within the lives of others,
Not so fortunate as ourselves.
It lives as well as it may.

A child must possess the knowledge
That there is love,
That love exists,
And that it may be found
In you.

For a Mother and for Father
Love truly blossoms evermore
When children find:

“Tis true
There is poetry all around,
Beauty flows from everything,
But by far
The most beautiful poem
Is you.”

 – Wm. C. Anderson
