Poem: What Have You Done To Me

What have you done to me?

You got me listening to love songs
Staying up late counting stars
Grinning from ear to ear
Gushing sonnets and promises

My eyes beam with sheer delight
At the mere sight of your face
My heart sings to the moonlight
Longing for your grace

What have you done to me?

This magic spell you cast
Has me twirling like witchcraft
At every turn of the clock
I’m missing our exquisite talks

My mind yearns
For you and only you
My heart seeks all of you
And you alone.

All of you
And only you.

In return, I give you me,
All of me.

This is what you’ve done to me.



Author’s Note: This poem is especially dedicated to all my friends who have fallen in love, are in love and have been in love with their respective partners for years. They give hope and inspiration that LOVE is indeed beautiful and fulfilling when it happens with the right person.

In my personal experience, ‪LOVE‬ IS ALL AROUND because there are many levels of LOVE. It can be shared and experienced with a special someone, or alone. But one must begin with ‪self-love‬, because that is the root of Love. Only then can all other forms of Love bloom with ‪beauty‬ and meaning. So, do everything with great love – from the way you think, act and speak. Embody love in your daily life – from a smile to a kind gesture. Above all, love and value yourself.

In this way, you become Love.

Happy Loving, my darling ones. 🙂

Being Afraid Is Human, But Staying Afraid Is A Choice.

      All pathways lead to Love, don’t you think so? Like Beacon, we are led back to Love. 🙂
