The Giver

I’m a compassionate creature

I am a giving tree.

So many times I think of others

So many times I forget about me.

The tables keep on turning

And the room constantly spins.

In my world of secrets and darkness

I’m never the one who wins.

I give until I have no more

Then I give things that I need.

So that others can be happy

So that others can succeed.

I see all the same faces

High up here in this tree.

Is there anyone else out there?

Anyone who wants to give to me?
