Never love someone while expecting to forget.
Like the sun, who gives warmth and light for you,

    This is on my list of favorites. Too often people expect reciprocity. That' not what life should be about. Very well written, Dr. Mridha. (Report) Reply

    This poem speaks truly. In life, we should be more concerned about what we give and not what we get. (Report) Reply

    A truly inspiring poem.The best feeling that anyone can have
    is when they give, even better when no return is expected.

    Like the sun, who gives warmth and light for you,
    Never complain, no matter what you do.

    Tolerance with out reason is wrong, as we, Indians do in our country. other than this sun provides not only the warmth, but also creates the desert and the poles by its presence and absence! so..? (Report) Reply
