Poem - Love is its own reward

A poem for NHS workers and everyone in caring professions who go on caring for others, even though they don’t receive the recognition or respect or pay that they deserve. In spite of the main idea of the poem, love alone is not a sufficient reward.


Love is its own reward

Some people stand apart,

have no need of status,


or the world’s approval.

They have risen

above the need for love or lovers

because they have it all

within themselves and love to spare

and give it all to others.
