Poem in Response

After reading “The Best Gift“, written by the talented and beautiful poetess, Annabel – wherein she shares finding happiness through love and faith along her journey from home – I was inspired to write this poem…

The gift of self love
To make oneself whole
Will reap great rewards
Enliven your soul
