The Joy of Unselfish Giving

Time is not measured

by the years that you live

But by the deeds that you do

and the joy that you give -

And each day as it comes

brings a chance to each one

To love to the fullest,

leaving nothing undone

That would brighten the life

or lighten the load

Of some weary traveler

lost on life’s road -

So what does it matter

how long we may live

If as long as we live

we unselfishly give.
