A gift given when compelled, is not really a gift at all,
For a gift is an expression of the heart's loving call!
A gift received, when hoped and desired for, isnt a gift too,
For it is being given only to fulfill the expectation in you!
Gifts given and received, from the heart, will never be questioned and analysed,
As, no matter how small or big, how expensive or not, it is the gesture that is prized!
And when the exchange of gifts is given only for "giving"s sake,
Instead of love, it is ingratitude and dislike that's left in its wake!
Remember! In whatever you say or whatever you do, be sincere and totally true,
Whether it is exchanging a gift, making salaam, or giving a supporting smile too!
With Sincerity, rewards and benefits for your actions you will still receive,
And it will be appreciated, instead of being looked at, as a tool to deceive!
