The Best Gift


The greatest gift that one can give another.
Is a simple act of kindness.
It comes from the heart with no strings attached.

No colorful wrapped boxes with colorful bows.
No price tag to tell one how much it cost.

And most of all it is never on sale.
It is free.
It is the only thing that comes with a no return address.

but the postman of the heart always knows,
Where to deliver the thank you note.

Into the moors.
