Love yourself, fully

So your next lover

Wouldn’t make the attempt

To meet you halfway on the streets of love

To love you easy, because easy is what he sees


Love yourself, fully

So he doesn’t dare

To love you half heartedly

Show him how to love you


It needs to feel like the wind chimes singing

Like a diamond stairs leading to the galaxies

Like ferrying the most delicate treasure of life

A feast of laughter cosied up by your fullness


A home with a mug

Of mint tea, a slice of ginger

And a warmed hug waiting.
