WHEN WE SHARE

When you look at our world…at our planet Earth…

one of her qualities evident everywhere…

is how she divides her love up equally…

how every part of her…she shares.

 

She shares her land, her trees, her sky, her sun, 

her rain, her stars, her air…

Perhaps if we pay attention…

there is a lesson there.

 

For, as humans, we are lucky 

not only to live on Earth’s carousel…

But, like the Earth, we too possess 

things we can share as well…

 

We can share a laugh, a tear, a sunset…

our pleasure and our pain

We can share a a touch, a quiet walk along the beach, 

a dance out in the rain.

 

We can share, a smile, a touch, a song, a hug 

when we’re happy…when we’re scared…

And why is it food and drink taste so much better 

when that food and drink are shared?

 

We can share our wonder, our experiences, our moments, 

our hopes, our fears, our rhymes

our joys, our sorrows, and most importantly…

we can share our time.

 

Yes, in a world where time passes by so quickly…

nothing can compare

nothing is more important 

than the time we choose to share.

 

And when you stop to think about it 

there is another lesson from our planet we can learn…

The key to sharing…is to share…

 

while asking nothing in return.
