The Gift

To give for the want of giving,

To take for the want, not need.

To share as though we have plenty,

O for a world without greed.

******

I don’t want your wealth or your money,

I can eat off the fat of the land.

Just give me the truth of your being

And take time to understand.

******

Give me the warmth of your body,

I’ll return it with part of my soul,

Give me true love and affection,

I’ll return it with my all.

*******

Give me your grief and your burdens

Tell me your sorrows and pain,

For now that my spirit is open

I will love you, even in vain.

****
