Two Languages Of Love

So do I show my love to you the way you need to hear,
Or do I show it to you in the way my heart is geared?
You like me to do things for you and full attention give,
For me resourced inclusion is what helps my life to live.

It’s like those funny cards we buy or sentimental words;
I like the first, you like the last, in both cards can be heard
The thoughts that rise from deep in us, and feelings of our hearts,
Which one to give – your way or mine, the message best imparts?

So now it comes down to a choice of gift – in task or kind?
‘Encouragement’s resource’ is what comes readily to mind;
So I will compromise this time – free resource with my gift,
Then clean the eves and mow the lawn, lest sentiment be missed.
