Tamara Willems

what i would tell you…

If I were to teach you how to love
what would I tell you
I would tell you about kindness and thoughtfulness
and
respect
yes, most especially respect
I would tell you about compassion,
consideration and
compromise
I would tell you about mindfulness
making time and
mistakes
I would tell you about forgetfulness,
forgiveness
and fear
I would teach you about risking it all
vulnerability, about honour
and faith
I would tell you about being open, about
possibility and about
hope
I would also tell you about uncertainties,
insecurities and
strength
about assuredness, awareness
and comfort
I could tell you much about passion
patience and
im-
perfection
I could tell you about plans, priorities
and pulling together
I would also mention space, silence
and
solitude
security, sincerity and the very true importance
of
honesty
I would tell you about fun
about laughter
and about pure delight
I would tell you about pride,
about presence
and about a deep, deep peace

then again,
I would come back around
to kindness,
to compassion and
to respect

If I were to teach you about love
I would tell you, it starts with you
in you
and is always with you

but
maybe
I wouldn’t

’cause what do I know…  ♥
