What Can You Give Me?©

By Felina Silver Robinson
She stands in the doorway
Anticipating the thoughts of her eldest daughter
What will she want?
What will she need?
What will she ask for?
How will she plead?
She works so hard to bring all that she can
Each time she enters her three surround her
Singing, hi mommy, what did you bring me today?
Never without something to give
she puts out her hand filled with goodies
Within seconds they are bare
Everyone happy with no despair
All in her day of pleasing her trio
The smiles are worth more than any dollar
All happiness comes from the thought of being loved
Not from the gift received
