♥ our first and last love is self love.

love after love.

the time will come
when, with elation
you will greet yourself arriving
at your own door, in your own mirror
and each will smile at the other's welcome

and say, sit here. eat.
you will love again the stranger who was yourself.
give wine. give bread. give back your heart
to itself, to the stranger who loved you

all your life, whom you ignored
for another, who knows you by heart
take down the love letters from the bookshelf

the photographs, the desperate notes
peel your own image from the mirror.
sit. feast on your life.
derek walcott.

images via we heart it.
