To Accept And Receive

No one who stays to accept and receive,
Should surprise anyone...
By their feeling obligated,
To express what they've been given.
And with a hope the understanding,
Has been reached to know...
What is understood is mutual.
What is yet to be addressed...
Is taken for granted,
To be understood to comprehend.
And needing not to be mentioned,
To bring attention to its importance.
