I have this ability
To absorb others’ emotions.
When someone tells me a story of emotion,
an extreme moment that they felt, or feel,
I immediately feel that emotion.
Something within me cares so deeply,
I feel what they feel.
I absorb that emotion-
It grows within my stomach.
This is why
When you told me those things-
That I was the most wonderful woman you’d ever met
How unique I was
How special, how genuine I was.
When you told me those things
I began to feel them
I began to realize
I am beautiful
I am unique
I am special
I am me
You loved me
So I began to love me
You hurt me
But sweetheart, you healed me.
You helped me learn things about myself
You helped me love myself
And that is just the beginning
Of why I love you.
But love does not last forever
These people can not stay in your life forever
They are meant to come for some time,
When you need them most.
They help you grow
They show you what life should be
They show you what love is
They inspire you.
Becomes a part of you
You give them your heart and they give you theirs
But you cannot hold their heart forever
You must give it back,
And let them give yours back
Because you cannot hold the same heart for eternity
You must let it go, let it grow, and let it be
Let it inspire you
Allow another's heart to inspire your growth,
and inspire their heart in the same way.
