"Here is my secret. It is very simple: It is only with the heart that one can see rightly; what is essential is invisible to the eye.."- Antoine de Saint Exupéry

Teach Me Love


I am so young,
Be careful what you show me,
All I know is only what you say.
Don’t teach me how to dwell on suffering,
Teach me love
And I’ll be free.

  13. Sweet poem! Children do seem to pick up on even the stuff we don’t want them to. Love is a good lesson to teach.
