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

I want you to know
one thing.

You know how this is:
if I look
at the crystal moon, at the red branch
of the slow autumn at my window,
