Give & Recieve


Give & Recieve

To receive is always, always a great feeling,
Whether needed, important, or it's simply appealing,

To the eye, your mind, will soon set that aside,
Until you've felt a spark, as a groom, with bride,

We've cried, mixed emotions, are shown with compassion,
A love story, happiness soon covers the sadness,

Switch sides, well what about the giver whose given,
Does he, or she get nervous, and suddenly give in,

To destruction, not at all, the first step is..breath,
And remember that it's better to...Give Than Recieve

  • Comment from author about the poem: I wrote this about well mostly us...having the fear of doing, or forgetting about those who are in need. From my history in a hospital, I remember this sick elder woman next to my room. She had no family, or friend visits, and was not trying to do anything physical therapy, basically giving up on herself. It was time for me to do therapy, one day, and instead of taking my normal route I asked to pass her room, when spoke with her, what happiness showed from her face, and she thanked me just for that. I didn't buy anything, but She told me It's been so long since anyone had taken the time to just speak. When I was leaving she thanks for the gift, and remember it's better to Give Than Recieve talk to tomorrow.
