Beautiful December

Now, when the garden awaits the return of spring
Now, when the silence is deep and blue
Now, when the winter has cast her spell again
Beautiful December, Beautiful December

Here, where the snow is as soft as a woolly lamb
Here, where the nightfall is deep and blue,
Here, where the stars are so bright, you reach for them
Beautiful December, Beautiful December

Child, may you sleep in gentle peace tonight
Dream of songs that rise on silken wings!
When you wake, enchanted by the snowspun light
Sing the songs that came to you in dreams,
Your beautiful December dreams

Don't give yourself away ..."

    “There is much to learn about mothering, she said -
    you will need to give beyond your limits,
    yet not give yourself away.
    you will need to soothe and calm,
    even when peace eludes you.
    you will be required to believe without any doubts
    when others shake their heads and sigh.
    to trust your instincts, and follow your heart,
    digging into depths that you never even knew
    were there.
    you will need to give your all,
    and then let go.
    encouraging their growth, cheering their flight,
    all the while watching pieces of yourself fly away.
    and when it's over, your job turns to you.
    and offering all that you've learned to yourself.
    it will be time to mother you.”

    I was so excited that I gave away all the ideas during internal meeting.

    If I give away all my past to you then you will not even like to talk with me.
    @Frank please point out my mistakes.

    @shah51272 If I gave away all about my past, you probably wouldn't talk to me anymore.

    If I proved that the girl I liked is the right person for me, I will give away my true feelings for her.
