To Cherish


To cherish one in their childhood is to give

Must we empathize with our foes to forgive?

Slapdash ideation hoarded in a sieve

Spilled ink replenishing our will to live

To cherish one in their dotage is to give



This week the event is to Write a story or poem of 5 Lines or Less using the word give. Please drop by and join the fun at Patricia’s Place

    What do I give when I have no more?
    When giving weakens our heart and our soul, it destroys.
    I have nothing more to give from deep within
    My soul is saddened, thus no more giving.

        If you GIVE me a hug, I will hold on tight
        Need a lot of hugs to get through tonight.
        I treasure what you Give, because I know you care
        Give and keep on Giving,
        You are a wonderful kind ‘Dear’

        The past few weeks has taken me to the point of ‘no more’. Somehow though when I am totally at the brink of lowest there is still more to give from within. Thanks, appreciate your support … #regenerating

    Nice words Eugenia. Forgiveness is a great word but a difficult thing to give sometimes.

    Cherishing another at any time of their life, from childhood to dotage, is to give.

    To give is the best gift that we can give
    for when we give we purchase ourselves some reprieve.

    Okay, I love your poem and had to chip in a bit 😉
