You remember the song by the Righteous Brothers. Sure, it's a love song. But, remember how you once felt about your business when you first began? Courting her, bending over backward to please her, always anticipating her every need, and making sure she always knew she was supported. It was fun and exciting until one day you realized, you had given all you had to give and this relationship was not a reciprocated love story. Now you're left wondering how you'll ever break the chains.
Lonely rivers flow
To the sea, to the sea
To the open arms of the sea
Lonely rivers sigh
“Wait for me, wait for me”
I'll be coming home, wait for me
The Giving Tree
“Every day the boy would come to the tree to eat her apples, swing from her branches, or slide down her trunk…and the tree was happy. But as the boy grew older he began to want more from the tree, and the tree gave and gave.
Shel Silverstein has created a moving parable for readers of all ages that offers an affecting interpretation of the gift of giving and a serene acceptance of another's capacity to love in return.”
