    The title gives a pleasant imagery. More or less like a teacher‘s advice to his student! I am impressed by the tone of the 2nd verse- “let others enjoy the privacy of the touching words and the love of loss of love.“
    - -thank u maya!

    A very touching poem. I see and feel in this
    poem a sense of longing for togetherness.
    We are all one, no man is an island. Very
    spiritual.

    The mysticism of the poem reverberates in the reader's consciousness while the poet wants to rise higher hand in hand with supreme being. Simple but powerful poem.

    Great piece of work with the muse of love.

    Within a short and simple word, love has been defined. Brilliant

    Brillant write...just as all of hers are...
    I admire her so.

    A rejected Hallmark card
