Namaste Leo Buscaglia

by Barbara MacDonald (writer), CANADA , October 16, 2012

Felice Leonardo "Leo" Buscaglia Ph.D., also known as "Dr Love," was an American author and motivational speaker, and a professor in the Department of Special Education at the University of Southern Ca

Many years you have walked with me

I carry a piece of your spirit inside

The best part of me

A noble place that often exists

In pure silence beyond

Superficial trappings of life...

Awakening in me a thirst for truth

Soul searching longing to arrive

At a higher place of peace

Unconditional love and grace

You open mine eyes

To what I have always known...

As the wind blows in the storm

There is no fear in me

I hold your truth firmly

Radiating every need-full time

Protecting me in the purity

Of silent truth and love...

Mentoring my heart's purpose

Opening with empathy unending

Instructing my spiritual knowing

Arriving beyond earthly limitations

Unshaken firmly planted

In faith and benevolence...

Clasping my hands in honor

A solemn reminder and token

Of gratitude expressed emotionally

Finding my own conscious mediation

Between body and soul

Apparition incorporeal being...

You walked this earth in truth

Beauty lived inside your gentle compassion

Soulful knowledge imparted

Bestowed to all who were

Privileged when touched by your

Unwavering faith and purpose...

Thank you Leo Buscaglia

Barb, your unwavering faith on Leo Buscaglia can be seen in this poem which you have so beautifully pen down...I came to know about this great man through you only…certainly a great man he was…He talk real sense about love…To read him….to understand him and to follow his sayings would a great honor for this man…He has shown a path, which certainly to me is an answer to bail out from chaotic conditions…He shared the reasons of love with messianic fervor and that’s how he is still in hearts of millions…He still holds millions of heart like you and I believe that’s how you could write this poem to honor this great man…Keep it up Barb and thank you so much for making me know about Leo Buscaglia…
