I’ve never been a wealthy man
I had no strong ambitions
I just wanted fun, that’s, all
This was my only mission
Yet I was always generous
And I gave to every one
As my wife used to question me
On the generous deeds I done

She’d say to me ‘you foolish man
Nobody gives you aught!’
So I told her with confidence
Just what I had been taught
I said ‘it all comes back to you
Just you wait and see’
She did not follow my belief
A fool she thought I be.

But now I have me all I want
I own a house and car
And money just flows out to me
I guess that’s how things are
My good wife lives quite happily
Cause all her needs are met
And all my generosity
My lady don‘t regret..

    Hi Peter, Loved this one. Have you ever noticed that those who don't have much get more out of giving than those that have? I always thought it should be the other way round. As always, I did enjoy the way you laid this piece out. The way you laid it out made it fun to read. There are many ways to be generous and as you so rightly say, somewhere down the line you it comes back to you, sometimes in the strangest ways. You and Vera have a good holidays. Catch you later. Your Friend....MIKE.

    Thank you Michael. Generous people are very rarely rich in money, yet very rich in spirit. I thank you so much for all your kind comments over the weeks, I want to tell you that I really do appreciate them, my friend....peter

    WOW Peter! I just loved this poem. I do believe in being generous. When you give and give from your heart - it does come back to you...... Lucilla

    Thank you Lucilla. Some people give because they want something, either here or in Heaven. yet others give because they can't help it. This is me, though I can't take credit for it, it is just how I was made. It has always come back to me though. I appreciate your comments, my friend...peter
