Love is a gift given freely
without coercion or greed,
without expectation of gifts returned
or appreciation, it has no need,
but desire for safety, health, and joy
for the gifted, known or unseen.
That's when it's pure, absent of self,
and the greatest gift received.
So, may you live in health, joy and peace.
All manner of wonderful things
and promise me, please, to cherish
yourself, and live up to all that love means.
