Kindness


In my quiet time
I ask God to show you kindness
Like you'd showed me
When I was without bread

My plate never return empty
from your kitchen
You refilled my bottle to the brim
Lend me your lamp when I was in the dark
A bible to keep the faith

And it left a smile on my heart
God knows I wouldn't forget
Your kindness toward me
Even in dead my heart still prays for you
till the end of time

Of this worlds theatre in which we stay,
My love like the spectator ydly sits
Beholding me that all the pageants play,
Disguysing diversly my troubled wits.
