A Marvellous Gift

A marvellous gift the great gift of compassion it is a gift not everyone possess
Compassionate people feel for other people for those who know of great unhappiness
They are not selfish or in any way self centred for to help and comfort others they go out of their way
And for themselves they are building up good karma what goes around does come around they say
Compassionate people are the best of people for the suffering of others they do care
The World is better for them living in it but sad to say they are known to be rare
I've known a few of them but not that many and them I did feel privileged to know
They are the sort of people well worth knowing such love and kindness they do have to show
There's more to life than only thinking of our own needs there are others beside Me, Myself and I
Though love of self it can be quite important for to say different it would be a lie
But we should also spare some thought for others of others needs we ought to feel aware
There are millions of poor sad and lonely people doing it quite tough in the big World out there
A marvellous gift the great gift of compassion those with it good karma for themselves do sow
Compassionate people they are in minority and a few of them I feel privileged to know.

poet Rupert Brooke

If I should die, think only this of me:
That there's some corner of a foreign field
That is for ever England. There shall be
In that rich earth a richer dust concealed;
