When A Gift Is Given
 


When a gift is received, we can be so easily deceived!
Consider the giver, may he have an ace up his sleeve?
Nice, if all gifts were given expecting nothing in return
we pay a price should that old saying never be learned!
'You don't get something for nothing', as the words go
There may be some truth to that theory, don't ya know!

But....

On the other hand, if the sender's intentions are true
accept the gift sweetly, they're wanting to please you!
Act pleasantly surprised if you don't like what you see
or even more so if the gift happens to make you happy!
Given from the heart, no expectations, loyal and true
WOW! You gotta feel lucky someone cares about you!
