There is a light that I see in the dark,
And a smile that I’ve loved from the start,
The mystery that is hidden in your eyes,
And the feeling that comes when your very soul cries.
How much we really know about our existence?
When you take a step back and look from a distance,
A few simple things can amount to everything,
The way someone’s laughter can make your heart sing.
The love you have shown me over the years,
To the unknown paths, sometimes life steers,
It may look far away, but happiness is actually within our grasp,
If we are brave enough to fulfill life’s task.
To me, it’s your smiling eyes that bring bliss,
When you’re sad, my heart also cries,
Making you happy is my only purpose,
Never assume that no one cares because someone does.
I want to say this now, I love you!
Let it be a reminder that my feelings have always been true,
Your very essence is something that keeps me going,
My words resonate with the truth they’re portraying.

I recently came across a quote by Martin Luther King Jr., “I have decided to stick to love…Hate is too great a burden to bear.” And I think it is a beautiful sentiment. Love is the only important emotion that we should pay attention to. It’s better to just forget hate and forget everything that you might hate. I truly believe that this should be our motto in life.
It won’t be easy, no point in pretending that it would be. But slowly we can do this only if we keep trying. Sometimes when I’m thinking about what to post next and I come up with a topic where I discuss my dislikes and hates, I pause. I think twice and then ask myself, ‘do I really want to talk about something I despise?’ and ‘should I?’ More often then not, my answer to both these questions is a NO.
My philosophy is; why talk about things that don’t bring us joy? It feels counterproductive. Don’t you think? Anyhow, I do love to talk about things I like and appreciate in life. Bringing positivity to the forefront is always a good idea.
So, on the positive note, I wish you all a fabulous February. I hope this year and all the coming years bring us joy & happiness!
