The Give and Take Cake

What’s mine is yours,

What’s yours is mine:

Time,

Love,

Attention.

Why?

Give and take,

Like a cake is baked.

The ingredients:

Time,

Love,

Attention.

Smile.

Laughter,

Like a medicine

It heals us,

Tastes so sweet,

Tongue in cheek.

It’s looking good enough to eat.

Sacrifice,

Pay the price,

Give up what you want,

It’s not advertised.

Understanding,

It’s amazing,

Walk a mile in his shoes,

You’ll your feet are bleeding.

Respect each other,

Treat her like your mother,

Keep your opinion to yourself,

Don’t even bother.

Everybody makes mistakes so add compassion.

Give and take,

Like a cake is baked.

The ingredients:

Time,

Love,

Attention,

Laughter,

Sacrifice,

Understanding,

Compassion.
