Falling a Little in Love with a Lot of People

by ZOE

Today I fell a little in love.

Today I looked someone in the eyes, we laughed and I felt myself fall in love.

I watched someone make a foolish joke and I fell in love.

I was having a hard day and someone hugged me tight and I fell in love.

Someone waiting outside the door for you to come out, a

silly face put on simply to make someone smile, it all made me fall just a little in love. I

fall for the sky, I fall for the stars,

for a toddler staring in awe at the world around them, I fall for it all.

What is life if not falling in love with everything around you?

When someone talks about something they love, they sparkle, they stand taller.

It is hard to not fall in love with someone who does this.

I’m falling for someone at least once a week.

Today someone read my poem and fell in love, just a little.

That is why I wrote it, so we can all fall a little in love with a lot of people.

    This poem reminds me of my best friends favorite quote by Doctor Seuss “You know you are in love when you cant fall asleep because reality is finally better than your dreams”. Your poem is a beautiful way to remind others to “fall in love with life”.

    I’ve bookmarked this in my browser, because it brought happy tears to my eyes. I’ve never heard anyone express the small moments of wonder and human connection we feel everyday as ‘falling in love’. Which is ridiculous, really, because now that I have I don’t think I’ll ever have any other way to express the feeling. I’m lucky to have experienced this, in a time where human connection seems so unattainable. You’re right, I fell a little bit in love with you when I read this, and I’m better for it. I hope we can all keep falling in love with the world around us and the people who live in it.

    I feel like this poem is bursting with love! and that is what the world needs. Great job with connecting people to a positive source, and to each other. I love how this poem starts off with basically explaining how we can fall in love with the little things on the daily — and the world around us. It is there for us to pay attention to! I also find this poem to be very “cute”, if you will. It also does remind me of a Dr. Seuss poem — possibly there to remind little girls that you don’t have to fall in love with a man, ultimately, there is no pressure — you can fall in love with your life, at any time! Great work on connecting others and making people feel love.
