Restraint
NOTHING TOO MUCH
one Greek sage said.
What are kisses worth,
if given to many people?
What do words mean,
if spoken to many people?
"I love you",
how many times
can you say it to people?
How often can you repeat it
without it getting worn out?
Be careful!
Because each time love is divided,
the rest gets smaller.
Do not waste
kisses, words, embraces.
Otherwise, what does remain
for those worth it?
Precious is only the particular,
unique which not
everybody has or gets.
Believe me,
I am telling stories
you can trust me.
