I hope this is the appropriate forum to share this beautiful poem..

I found it on another favorite website of mine :-)

Love After Love

The day will come when, with elation,
you will greet yourself arriving at your own door, in your own mirror,
and each will smile at the other’s welcome, and say,
sit here, eat.

You will love again the stranger who was yourself.

Give wine, give bread.
Give back your heart to itself,
to the stranger who has loved you all your life,
whom you ignored for another,
who knows you by heart.

Take down the love letters from the bookshelf,
the photographs, the desperate notes,
peel your own image from the mirror.

Sit. Feast on your life.
~ Derek Walcott

Don't tie your happiness to the tail of somebody else's kite

Live without pretending
Love without depending
Listen without defending
Speak without offending

I think the folk in New Beginnings would love this. Maybe you could also post it there? New Beginnings starts with loving yourself and looking after yourself ... Thanks for sharing.

Thanks for sharing this beautiful poem.

I think I will print it out and stick it on my bedroom wall. :)
