My Heart Will Always Sing

In life
I have given
So much
Always been there
Giving
Constantly giving
Never
Asking for anything
For giving
Not wanting anything
For giving
Pure fulfilment
from giving
Have I given too much?
Respect lost
Why?
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

    Giving, constantly giving/Never asking for anything....speaks volumes about a kind heart. You have rightly understood what pleasure it yields when you give than you take. A poem that emanates from the generous heart of the poetess....10

    Have I given too much? what a great attitude, this is the attitude of Jesus Christ and Mother Theresa. God bless you to give even more and pray for me so that i may also give everything for the poor. tony

    The greatest act of charity is charity towards the uncharitable. You've painted a powerful picture of charity and its reality. A poem that fosters the universal brotherhood of man. Lovely indeed. Thanks for sharing Lyn and do remain blessed.
