Kindness

A Poem by Dawn
"

with thanks to John for helping me correct things. Thank you. Dawn

"




A hand to hold
a smile to give
a cuddle to receive
and a nice word to share.

These are just small acts
of kindness, we all can give
to one another, family
friends and even
strangers.

Even a simple hello to
someone passing you on
the pavement.
Can lift their spirits
and set them on their way
with a skip in their step.

In this fast paced world.
Everyone is constantly in
a hurry.
Or heads down and on an iPhone
or a laptop.

Put them away and actually
Look each other in the face
and smile and maybe even
say Hi.

Instead of a cold response of
bowed heads all over the place.

Thanks Jacob. hugs. Dawn.
There isn't enough kindness around nowadays Dawn. People have lost the art of showing it. It costs nothing and even a warm smile can really brighten up someone's day. Love the message in your lines. Hope you and yours are all ok.

thank you Shadow. Dawn.
Just a few small edits to offer on this piece which sensitively encourages better communication and more humanity to fellow 'travellers'.
