To Cherish

169648-Goldfish

to cherish living one must give

absolve anger and opt to forgive

hasty judgment one can’t outlive

 blissful moments to be relived

  1. 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.
