Hier zu sein ist so viel*

Give and you will
always have more to give.

What kind of law
is this?

Drawing from the deepest places
things you can never empty.

From deep depths of character
and talent

Expressed time, friendship,
Compassion,

A true Self
to which there is no end

To give is only to deepen,
Eyes enabled wide to see more,

Always becoming more than
you now know yourself to be –

Giving invites who
you can be tomorrow.

(*Rainer Maria Rilke, quoted in John O’Donohue’s To Bless the Space Between Us: to be here is immense.)
