An Open Heart

I know I’m selfish
expecting love,
never thinking
that I should give it first.

But I’m slowly changing,
growing into
a more loving person.

Little by little,
I’m trying to show love
and not demanding it
in return.

I’m starting with
those already around me,
being more patient,
more forgiving.

So when the time comes
to meet my future husband,
I’m be ready and waiting,
with an open heart.
