Fall in Love : Free Verse (Letters from the Soul #6)


Fall in love
With your loyal 3am companion
Who knows all your secrets 
Patiently wipes your tears,
And never gives up on you
Fall in love
Darling! I'm talking about you.

Fall in love
With your quirks that make you laugh
Your emotions that add to your beauty
Every scar that whispers your story
Fall in love
Today! Bask a little in your glory.

Fall in love
With how you stitch your cracks
Flaunt your smile amid the tempest dark
Pick yourself up from the murky pit
Fall in love
Now! Celebrate your indomitable spirit.

Fall in love
With how deep you love and care
Accept every rose with its thorns
The way you trace the silver lining
Fall in love
Again!  You're meant to keep shining.

Fall in love
With your lifelong companion
Who'll be there with you in sun and rain
Grow wiser each day to ease your pain
Who'll be forever true to you
Fall in love
Darling! I'm talking about you.

Note: This is a free verse on self-love. May we all be unapologetically kind to ourselves and find the time to fall in love with ourselves again and again. 
Celebrate yourself! You can never pour from an empty cup. So, fill the cup of your heart with self-love so that you can love others.

  1. Fell in love with composition my dear, how true is this, we most first fall in love with ourselves, I will take a print and read it multiple times. I belong to the old school of reading paperbacks and prints to feel every ounce of it ♥️👌😊

  3. How many times do we shower some love on our selves? I guess, very rarely. Your poem aptly states the reasons for falling in love with yourself. Lovely.

  10. Fall in love
    With how beautiful these words are
    That remind you of something you have been forgetting
    Amongst all the hatred, guilt and self loathing in your heart, you preserve
    Fall in love
    With the person everybody adores in you coz it's what you truly deserve

    PS, this is beautiful, Purba. You wrote it with such grace. Applaudable!
