Do I look okay?
Too big, too small, too bald, too…
Love You as you are.
It is time
To heed the signs
And grow a spine;
Let us be kind
And bear in mind
The ones we find
In tightest bind;
Let’s not be blind,
Keep this enshrined:
“We’re all entwined.”
Beneath the Cross, I find my home.
Yet wherever you may roam,
I hope you find the peace you need,
That you may be from mis’ry freed.
You may not share my home with me,
And find some other family.
But on the day we all return,
We’ll find we all have much to learn.
Yet if we seek, while we are here,
To love and help and lend an ear
To live with kindness openly,
Kin in Spirit we will be.
You needn’t be a fighter strong
Or a list of exploits miles long
To be a hero every day
For those you meet along the way.
You may not get a badge or star,
No plaque or bust for who you are,
But you can matter very much
In all the lives you get to touch.
Stop and help to change some tires,
Be present when the worst transpires.
Donate food or cash or hours
To those who need love’s healing powers.
Adopt a child or a pet,
Spend time with those we all forget.
There may not be a big parade
About the difference you have made,
But if you love all whom you see,
A hero is what you will be.
It’s so amazing how
Some kindness then and now
Can bring a heart to peace
As grief and pain release
What is done is done.
Tomorrow is not certain.
For today, be kind.
May your mind be Peace.
May all of your acts be kind.
May your words be love.
I am but a passing shade;
Here today, but soon to fade.
Yet this is not a cause for grief,
For though our stay here might be brief,
Each one of us now has the chance
To make a move in life’s grand dance.
Don’t wait another beat to say
Important things along the way.
Don’t stall in being kind or true,
And don’t stop cultivating “you.”
Be quick with generosity,
Respecting everyone you see.
Share and give and love and smile.
We’re only here a little while.
