then there is no reason left to be afraid



what will i lose by loving?
i murmured.

nothing
it murmured back.
but there is the possibility that it will hurt.

i can accept that.
it is a small price to pay
for something so important. 

but
it cautioned as i turned to leave
there is the possibility that you will not be loved in return.

that is not a problem.
i murmured.
as long as i can love.
what will i lose by loving?

nothing
it murmured back.

absolutely nothing.

thank you.
i breathed.
 i will set my hand to the plow
and i will love again.

  2. This is exactly what I was just thinking about. :-) Greater love has no one than this that a man should lay down his life for his friends. Sometimes laying down your life doesn't mean physically dying, but the daily dying to self so that others might grow from your death.
