''Still Keeping Score?''

There was a time
not long ago
I kept a mental list
of all I spent
and all I got
so nothing would be missed

Who paid for what?
how much is mine?
make sure it evens out
In time I learned
the tally's not
what this is all about

While keeping score
I missed the things
no ledger can record
like love and trust
and friendly hearts
that can't be saved or stored

So now I give
straight from the heart
no invoice, notes or pad
and find this life
and times with friends
the best I've ever had!

The more you love, the more you give
the less you will keep score.
The more you give, the more you get
you'll never end up poor!
