I will give you love on February 14, Valentine’s day.
I will give love to anyone and everyone I meet, until it is gone.
I have love to give my family, lots and lots.
I have love to give my dear friends, oh so much.
I have love to send to those I once loved and still carry in my heart.
My love will go to my dog, a golden retriever named tawny,
Because she is a love sponge and will take all I can give.
Love one another as I have loved you, so
I will love the stranger on the road, the homeless in the shelter, and those without.
But I have love for the rich and powerful too! Even he who must not be named.
I’m not sure how much love I have, but I will give and give untiil I have none left.
How much do you want? You can help yourself to as much as you want or need, and
Thereby help me to empty my heart.
When I was 75 I gave love notes to 36 people, telling them “I love you.”
But that didn’t seem to diminish the love I held on to.
I have loved my spouse for 45 years or more, and while it wains and wans, it is just as strong as ever.
Tell me anything else that grows as you try in vain to give away only grows and
Maintaains the fullest level you can retain.
It doesn’t work to give it away..
It only diminishes when you keep it, as in a bottle, corked, and unable to go to others.
You don’t have to hate others to lessen the love you have, ignoring, keeping them at a distance,
Spending it all on yourself or things or closing your eyes and your heart,
Will decrease the love you have to share?
No, not even that, for as soon as you hold another in your arms, your heart burns brightly again.
So try as I might, whether on Vaentine’s day or otherwise, There is no end to the love I can give,
As there is no end to the love.
So dear one, I love you, and hold you in my heart, forever.
