To love… / Poem by Myriam Ghezaïl Ben Brahim

 
Poem by Myriam Ghezaïl Ben Brahim
 
 
To love…
 
It is to navigate in the hearts of people…
To take the way of their feelings…
To know how to console the unhappy friend…
To cry while listening to his confessions…
To be moved by his touching words…
To dry his tears by reassuring him…
To love…
 
It is to brush with the glance the depth of the soul…
Appreciating when your interior is inflamed…
To drink in the words of kind people…
To say a true “I love you”…
To worry about the problems of your own…
To believe that the universe belongs to us…
To love…
 
Is to pluck the daisy together…
To be passionate even when your heart palpitates…
It is to invent the worst follies…
To be able to shout that life is beautiful…
It is to walk side by side towards the infinite…
Without ever playing the comedy…
To love…
 
It is to let oneself be intoxicated by words…
Even if at the bottom one has the big heart…
To lean on a shoulder like a child…
To admit the necessity of people’s presence…
To take pleasure in making others happy…
To cherish by being true and sincere and generous…
To love…
 
It is to engrave one’s memories without crying…
It is to be cuddled by your children…
It is to grow old in solitude with wisdom…
To never forget the moments of tenderness…
To free oneself from the sufferings of one’s past…
Finally forgive everything that has hurt us…
To love…
 
It is to triumph with compassionate eyes…
To be lulled by the rainbow…
To believe that friendship is eternal…
To be moved by the caress of your grandchildren…
To fall asleep peacefully with the setting sun…
Blindly bowing to your destiny…
