Dr. Debasish Mridha


Giving Without Expectation


Never give a gift with the expectation to get.
Never love someone while expecting to forget.
Like the sun, who gives warmth and light for you,
Never complain, no matter what you do.

The river gives you life and water, but never regret.
Why are we so little? Asking for returns without respect.
Whatever you give, in disguise it comes back to you.
If you hurt someone, someway you're hurting you.

    This poem speaks truly. In life, we should be more concerned about what we give and not what we get. (Report) Reply

    A truly inspiring poem.The best feeling that anyone can have
    is when they give, even better when no return is expected.
    A good write. (Report) Reply

    Like the sun, who gives warmth and light for you,
    Never complain, no matter what you do.

    Tolerance with out reason is wrong, as we, Indians do in our country. other than this sun provides not only the warmth, but also creates the desert and the poles by its presence and absence! so..? (Report) Reply

He stood, a worn-out City clerk —

For forty years from dawn to dark —
Alone beside Caermarthen Bay.
