To Give is to Take

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Show me the way to my lost dreams,
and I will dream huge for us both.
 
Carry me to the end of the rainbow,
and we imbibe each colour together.
 
Take me outside in the pouring rain,
so that we can dance as only two people can.
 
Lead me up the steep mountainside
to learn shared secrets of the thinnest air.
 
Remind me that giving is taking,
and the world will never be hungry again.
 
Tell me again that I am the world,
and I will work to heal to my last breath.
 
Teach me to give with all my heart,
and I will give it all to you.
