Strip down all egos and all fears,
as how one should strip off all clothes,
one's skins, one's bones,
until there's nothing to hide,
but the revealing of your soul.
I search for answers as I learn the Law of the Universe. I found a poem excerpt from Dr. Leo Buscaglia's Living, Loving, and Learning book. Though I have not read it yet (which at this point I have already obtained a copy in my Kindle library), the below poem was said to be by his student and the short reviews on the book was enough to entice me.
Remember the day I borrowed your brand new car and I dented it?
I thought you’d kill me, but you didn’t.
And remember the time I dragged you to the beach, and you said it would rain, and it did? I thought you’d say, “I told you so.” But you didn’t.
Do you remember the time I flirted with all the guys to make you jealous, and you were?
I thought you’d leave me, but you didn’t.
Do you remember the time I spilled strawberry pie all over your car rug?
I thought you’d hit me, but you didn’t.
And remember the time I forgot to tell you the dance was formal and you showed up in jeans?
I thought you’d leave, but you didn’t.
Yes, there were lots of things you didn’t do,
But you put up with me, and you loved me, and you protected me.
There were lots of things I wanted to make up to you when you returned from Vietnam.
But you didn’t.
Life and love should be treated equally, with our truth. Not a day pass by I regret a single thing, not a chance I will let this happen.
If I didn't know enough about love, I want to know everything.
I love love, and I am not ashamed of it.
