When It's Given

If you want it,
Take it.
But don't let it go.
When it's given,
Keep it.
And show it to grow.

And if you want it,
Take it.
But don't let it go.
Let it be known...
It is yours and adored.

Show it to be nourshed.
And yours to adore.
Flaunt it as it flourishes.
Knowing it is yours.

And if you want it,
Take it.
But don't let it go.
Let it be known...
It is yours and adored.

If you want it,
Take it.
But don't let it go.
When it's given,
Keep it.
And show it to grow.

You can share it if you wish,
But don't abandon it!

And if you want it,
Take it.
But don't let it go.
Let it be known...
It is yours and adored.
