It’s a warm glow inside me
Keeping me cozy
Inviting a slight soft smile
To turn up the corners of my mouth.

When the joy washes over me
And floods me with happiness,
I know its core.

It’s in a secret place
Deep inside me
I feel it flickering
When I least expect it.
I keep it safe and protected
Lest a wayward breeze
Will snuff it out…

But I am coming to realize
The strength of the fuel
Which feeds this wondrous flame.

I treasure its warmth
I rejoice in its light…
This glow bestowed upon
All that I do.

My love for you begins there…
In my love for me.
