Dear  Why,

in my request of nothing desired,

wishing only for thier own happiness should they feel as though; as they must?

I will never understand.

I guess they feel like I do, as giving feels good, so I'll give just a little more;

 I just don't like to take.

We should just have made a gift, labeled: for the both of us,sooner.

What more do we need?  Calling it an expression.

This really struck a chord with me, Doc. I'm far happier with the giving than the taking.

Really nice poem Dr.

I'm definitely ...maybe unfortunately a giver...and hope I will never change...

I love the perspective of this poem. Also the idea of having Why and Love make conversations with each other is unique and thought provoking. I agree with Love, the joy of giving from one’s heart is a gift itself! Did you write more of this conversation?
