Self Love Poem by Melody Godfred

Today, give yourself


No, more than that.

Give yourself everything.

All of it.

Time, the benefit of the doubt,

gifts, patience, affirmation,

the extra mile,

delightful surprises,

validation, trust,

a soft touch, smiles

forgiveness, faith,

unconditional love.

All the things, once

reserved for our lovers,

for our children …

Take them.

They are yours.
