The essence of giving is all around us all we have to do is look for it with an open heart…
On a dark cloudy night,
The beauty of the glowing moon,
The cool breeze under the shade of a nearby tree,
In the scorching heat of the glaring sun at noon.
The dry, parched and patient land,
Comes back to life, with a few droplets of rain,
All of them unknowingly being that helping hand,
That relieves someone in need of all their pain.
The colourful flowers and the buzzing bees,
Always share their charm and beauty,
The soulful song of the chirping birds,
A melody unknown, yet unconsciously spreading serenity.
The parents who stay up endless nights,
Dreaming of their child’s future ahead,
The child in turn crawling, walking, running, falling and stumbling,
Aiming to make his parents proud persistently marches ahead.
From the shaking leaf of a hanging branch,
That provides shelter to a snail walking on slippery grounds,
To the leading hand that guides an old man,
Across the street away from the pushing crowds.
The essence of mortal living,
And the beauty of sharing,
Is found all around us shining through many examples.
From old to young, from nature to man,
Everyone gives the most of what they can.
Be it less, be it more,
Be it quantity or in quality.
An act of kindness or a simple gesture like smiling,
Nothing is more priceless, nothing is more satisfying,
Than feeling the power that comes from within,
As one understands, that ultimately – “Life is for Giving”.
