“The Dominoe Effect”

All I wanted in my life
were two things,
to be loved and to give love.

I have always given the second,
never received the first,
one out of two isn't bad, but painful.

Giving love is unconditional,
something unique,
something precious to the human soul.

Receiving love is easier,
but remember,
give and you shall receive in return.

As long as there are stars
in the midnight sky,
as long as the sun shines brightly,

I shall always give you love,
protect you with my life
until the day I die and far beyond.

For there is not greater thing
on earth than to love,
let your heart open to the possibilities,

then the improbable will fall
at your feet,
like dominoes in the game of life.
