Ft. Lauderdale, Fl USA
You ask me what I want..you want to give me something nice.
If you are open to requests, I'll give you some advice.
Just think of how much you would spend on some small gift for me,
Then take that same amount and give it to a charity.
No need to rack your brain of thinking something you can buy
When there are many needy souls who need it more than I.
Just think of all the inner peace that you could give to me
If my gift, and your money, were to help a charity.
I have no need for watches. I've already three or four
But that amount of money would go far to help the poor.
What need have I for jewelry or those fancy silken ties
When I could have the chance to bring a smile to some child's eyes?
If other people followed suit and took the time to give
How wonderfully we could enrich this world in which we live.
So give me that, my friend, and through your generosity
You'll give the greatest gift that you could ever give to me.
To the world you might be just one person but to one person you might just be the world.
