A Grateful Love

I love…
…your kind and thoughtful nature. You would rather see yourself do without than someone you care about. Yours is a truly a giving soul.

By American poet William Carlos Williams
It was the love of love,
the love that swallows up all else,
a grateful love,
a love of nature, of people,
of animals,
a love engendering
gentleness and goodness
that moved me
and that I saw in you.
