My Heart Will Always Sing - Poem by Lyn Paul

In life
I have given
So much
Always been there
Constantly giving
Asking for anything
For giving
Not wanting anything
For giving
Pure fulfilment
from giving
Have I given too much?
Respect lost
What, from giving? No matter what my gift is Giving; it has been worth it..
For I know. Others have gained.
What I have lost. I guess there is reason.
I must not lose
My gift
Of giving

    Strikes a chord... when I'm under the most intense onslaughts of the beast it's always immensely beneficial to find another in need and give them my shoulder to lean on and my ear to listen. (Report) Reply

    Beautiful! This is me all over too! I do question it occasionally but mostly I can't help it! But I have learnt to put me first a bit more! It's about finding a balance as not everyone thinks the same way obviously! This poem made me shed a tear for some reason! I think a good reason! (Report) Reply

    good one.i should appreciate your attitude, in this busy world people give more importance for getting than giving. someday, somewhere you should get the result. (Report) Reply

    Nice Theme and well written. This reminds me of this JApanese story, The Fool who gave everything, even the clothes on his back, until he had nothing. Then a goblin asked him for his eyes and body, because he wwas hungry and needed to feed. The man gave it to him, until he was only left with his head, then the goblin said here you go, a present. and it was a slip of paper that said Fool, but the old man shed tears from his eyeless head and said tHank you, this is the first time anyone has given me anything.

    There is indeed more pleasure in giving than in receiving and that pleasure lingers long! If the world gets populated with people of your stream of thought, Heaven will come down to the Earth! Nice poem! (Report) Reply
