What Are You Willing to Give?

“What are you willing to give?” he asked
And I answered, “All I’ve got”
“It will take much more that that,” he chuckled
And I went away confused

“What are you willing to pay?” he asked
“Everything,” I said
“I’m afraid that’s not enough,” he sighed
And I went away irate

Again he asked my willingness
And again I answered all
Again he gently shook his head
And I went away in tears

“What are you willing to give?” he asked
“All I’ve got and more”
And accepting my humble plea for help
He smiled and let me in
