Favorite Quote:
"Every time you smile at someone, it is an action of love, a gift to that person, a beautiful thing."
– Mother Teresa

It's not a feeling
It is an action
A conscious decision
To think of others
Better than oneself
And to treat them accordingly

It's not saved
For one person
Not this kind of love
It is to be shared
Because everyone should know

They matter
Are important
Someone cares
Wants the best for them

And will make sacrifices for them

If someone knew how
To love this way
Wouldn't they want nothing more
Than to share it with the world

That's what love is
