The Best Way

I love watching rainbows appear
in the mist of a waterfall.
I love a mountain
blanketed in snow.
I love standing in the midst of a field
where thousands of sunflowers grow.

I love how, at sunrise and sunset,
the color of clouds can enthrall.
I love how stars and fireflies twinkle.
I love how leaves change their colors in Fall.

But there is something about sunsets and flowers...
Something rainbows and fireflies lack...
For no matter how much I love them...
They cannot, in this life, love me back.

I will continue to admire their beauty
But, from them, this lesson I’ve learned
The best way to enjoy the beauty around me...
Is to love...and be loved in return.
