Loving Your Loving Heart

Yutang Lin

Beauty of one's appearances
Ability of one's achievements
Are not sufficient to make others feel amiable

Having been together for long time
Still not felt disagreeable to others
That is already rather rare

Who would like
Your arrogance, your selfishness

Having passed sixty winters and summers
No longer do I care for a person's appearance
Nor intelligence and ability
Loving only your loving heart

Among human beings only a loving heart
Emits warmth
And renders others to miss and wanting to get close
