for gigi and everyone

everybody wants to love you.
not everybody can, due to their own limitations, but everybody wants to.
deep in the center of the heart, the heart longs to love everyone everywhere all the time.
the heart knows how to do only this one thing, to love.
most people love you quite well.
you are entirely lovable.
i loved you from the first moment i saw you.
you have always been the most beautiful being in the world.
and i am, too.
and she is, also.
and so is he.
and that one and that other one and her and him, as well.
everybody wants to love you.
and everyone is beautiful.
i learned to love myself from your self-loving example.
most recently, i learned to love my hate.
thank you for teaching me to play with my fears.
the first lesson you taught me, when i was only 17, was how to receive a compliment.
thank you for teaching me to take a breath and let the love in.
thank you for teaching me compassion on that rainy day in new york city.
the crazy bag lady in the storefront yelled at us not to go inside.
instead of ignoring her, you stopped, bent down, and looked into her eyes.
you spoke to her.
you saw her.
you asked her permission to enter in order to honor, respect, and empower her.
permission was granted and we walked inside the store.
that day, witnessing your compassion, i learned to step inside the heart that loves everyone.
your heart loves everyone.
everyone who can loves you back.
i love you the most.
thank you. thank you. thank you for you.
