Do Not Be Afraid To Show Your Respect And Affection For Another

Affection. What does that mean to us? A friend, a love, a lover, a show of friendship or companionship.

We may not analyze it but it can mean so much. Particularly if we are feeling down, tired, over-stretched, stressed, or just plain in need of a cuddle.

It moves us. It warms our heart. It can be a heart to heart connection. Warm feelings between two or more people. It may appear to be small but it helps the world go round.

It can be the glue that enables so much to happen and keep so much together.

It can manifest in many different ways. A fondness for another. A likeness and feeling of love and care. A warmth. A devotion. A kindness.

At time just tenderness and tender loving care as we so easily put it. But it can move mountains in its own small way.

At times an attachment occurs and affection wafts around. But at times affection is a one-way street. This can be hard to take and live with. But unreciprocated it can be just as meaningful and heartfelt.

Some people show their emotions more easily than others. It is not that they don't want to but just find it difficult. Or have been told that is not the done thing. We all have to come to our own conclusions about showing affection. At times it is appropriate, other times will not be met in a good and respected way. We must judge the circumstance and go from there.

Being able to show our affection for another human being can be seen as a simple yet powerful act. And one with far greater meaning than these mere words could ever express.

The power of words . . .

Words can be healing, soothing, comforting, relaxing . . .

I hope this page will do this and more. I hope these examples will help to express life in an insightful, penetrating but easy to read manner. And help us to question the lives we lead and the manner in which we live them.


I look at my life with affection
a certain fondness and devotion
to the path I lead today
upon which I am happy to stay

For life has been good to me
it has made wonder, and set me free
of many an attachment and part of life clinging
to me like a limpet but not belonging

To the life I want to lead
they have taken me off a different way instead
but now I have come back to my home
I feel free, alive, content, my life to roam


To what am I fond

with which to make a bond
and also to really respond
and not feel disappointed or conned
a small fish in a large pond
I wish my life to go beyond

the importance of life to me this day has dawned


What am I passionate about
be interested in and on the lookout
for things that move me and with warmth fill me
so I get excited, enthused, not riddled with monotomy


I enjoy the warmth of our relationship
I very much appreciate our love and friendship
they fill me with feelings pure and good
let my life be always real with no falsehood


Your kindness has been a life saver for me
I appreciate it from the bottom of my heart
in life such feeling should be a key
to bring us together, not to put us apart


I am inclined to give this a viewing
it surely interests me
for I find it most rewarding
even though I am a busy bee


I respect you and what you stand for
and I hope you equally reciprocate
you are confident and motivated but not cocksure
may our friendship grow and develop, not be a makeweight


I have a soft spot for you
you show me who I am
and this on our debut
I hope this is real and no sham
I'd like to see our relationship is good and true
I want this to last - not for you to tell me to scram


To realize what in this life I really need
to treat with affection and not concede
my way to whatever I am after
for my life here and now I should cater

My desires they can take over
if I am weak or if I am strong
and life takes me round the next corner
but can I really wait that long

For all aspects that I can
in my life I should try to preplan
what I want to do and to achieve
to accomplish my desires I just have to believe

All best,
Martin
