I Give My All

For the heart roars with poetry when it hits a turning point… ~ mtg

Poem by Gay Tibay-Corbeta

I smile because it is in smiling that I am able to share.

I share because it is in sharing that I am able to see a glimpse of hope.

I hope because it is in hoping that I am able to show I care.

I care because it is in caring that I am able to experience touch.

I touch because it is in touching that I am able to convey love.

I love because it is in loving that I am able to experience sacrifice.

I sacrifice because it is in sacrificing that I encounter death.

I die because it is in dying that I am able to live forever….

I learn to give my all not because I am flowing with so much.

I give because I know how it is to be alone and empty.
