be yourself. be honest. be fair.
be gentle. be kind.
you'll be surprised,
how many friends you'll find.
the person standing next to you
might be the friend you never knew.
live to love, and love to serve,
learn to give without reserve.
if you expect love in return,
you'll continue feeling burned,
until one day you finally learn,
love cannot be "bought", nor "earned".
love must be given
and then received.
it can't be taken.
don't be deceived.
