the joy of giving

a life of service
serving others
rather than yourself
always giving
more than you take
the world needs more of you
that's for sure
hard to have nothing left
at the end of the day
still you keep on giving anyway
in danger of giving
too much of yourself away
to someone who only ever knew
how to take
seems to me this could be
one of life's great mistakes
but it's all about
how it feels for you
the joy of giving
until you've experienced it
perhaps you're not yet
truly living
