It costs not a thing
But it can give so much.
It fills the life of the receiver.
Without the giver losing
It but just a moment takes
But will linger in the thoughts for years.
The richest person .
Gets richer yet when it is given.
The poorest gets no poorer
By giving to the rich.
It creates happiness in the home.
In the place of work it brings goodwill.
It brings rest to the weary.
It cheers the person feeling low.
It is like a touch of sunshine on a gloomy day.
Bringing joy to the most sad.
It does all this and even more
And not just once,
but on and on.
It cannot be bought.
The beggar cannot claim it.
The owner cannot give on loan
Nor can the thief take in the dead of night
It has no value due or worth
Until the giver gives.
There are those who know not how to give.
The ones who need it most.
So as the day goes slowly on.
Give them one of yours.
As none has more need than one who has none to give.
Today I plead to you
To give a smile to all you see.
I am somehow in that frame of mind where paint is coming hard and my head is full of thoughts and words. I apologise therefore that this blog and my other now has verse on each on the same day.
