As you sit down during the lowering of today’s sun,
And reflect on the acts you have done, was kindness one?
Did you in your own way try to help ease someone else’s pain?
Did you try to help relieve someone else’s stress or strain?
With your actions were you sure to try and also be kind?
If you did any of these things then today you truly shined!
When you sit down during the lowering of today’s sun,
You can be proud of yourself for the kind things you have done.
But if instead your interest and concern was all on yourself this day,
Perhaps it is time to try a new and more fulfilling way.
If you weren’t able to offer a smile to help cheer another’s heart,
You will miss feeling like you accomplished your personal part.
If, you cannot quite yet conquer these particular trials,
Please remember we give others hope with just a simple smile!
If as you sit down during the lowering of todays sun,
And take the time to count the special acts you have done.
You will realize love and kindness always starts with just one.
