Loving glances,

soothing words,

both comforts wanted,

but not always received.


Why wait for another

to provide what you need?

Why watch the clock

with gnawing anticipation?


Get what you need instantly

by using what you have.

Your own eyes in the mirror,

your own words to yourself.


Love comes from more than another.

Appreciation can be given at will.

Give yourself what you want,

and love freely.
