Best wishes to you


Chase Von:)

Hope you like:)

The measurements of love
Often cannot be articulated
One feels it and one knows
And hopes that another
Can grasp the full meaning
But love is rarely a choice
It is what one feels
Compassion on the other hand
Is something that can be measured
In a way
Through the gratitude you see
In the eyes of others
And the warm feeling you have
That fills your heart
Knowing you helped someone
When you didn't have to
Because compassion
In addition to being a feeling
Is also always
A choice
