What Every Person Needs ...

by Silvia Hartmann

 

What Every Person Needs ...

   

What we all need as human beings 

is really,  just 

one single person 

to be absolutely on our side.

   

Someone who has faith in us,

someone to really love us as we are, 

no questions asked, 

without reservations 

or judgements of any kind;

   

Just a single person 

who will always be there 

to help us, protect us; 

   

To inspire us, applaud us  

when we have succeeded in something,  

no matter how insignificant  

it may seem to an outsider;  

   

Someone who will encourage us  

to strive towards 

the best we can possibly be,  

and always, always cheer us on;  

    

Someone who cannot ever be tempted away

by youth, beauty, money, bribes  

and will always choose us,  

every day, each moment afresh; 

someone to stand by us 

when everything falls apart,  

who will love us no matter what; 

   

Someone who will never let us down,  

never give up on us, 

never leave us  

and who will always, always  

be fiercely and actively loving of us  

in every way, every day,  

until we take our last breath in physicality.

   

Well, that person is here.  

   

It is you.  

   

And now, finally, we can start 

on the road to be that person  

we always knew we should have been - 

with a little help from our self,  

our endlessly loving totality.
