If you want to receive
Then you first should give.
A very good rule
By which to live.

So many are thinking
“Why don’t I feel love?”
As if it should flow freely
To you from above.

But while it is true
That love’s always there
It flows much more freely
When this love you do share.

So be not so selfish
Think not always of you.
Think instead of the others
And give to them what is due.

You’ll quite soon find out
When you hold nothing back
That what you are giving
You no longer lack.
