My Delight

by David Andrés Alíx

I have learned this

 

That because I have been

Loved supremely

I am able to love

Though not loved in return

 

Because I have been afforded

Dignity supremely

I am able to dignify

Though not dignified in return

 

Because I have been given

Everything supremely

I am able to give

Though not receiving anything at all

 

And because I am able

I must carry these out with a

Delightful soul
