A Kind And Gentle Loving Heart - Poem by Vanessa Hughes

We mainly grow
Through bearing hardship
We tend to learn
By living pain
We're able to
Enjoy the sunshine
From wading through
The pouring rain

Embracing hard times
Help us learn
To trust that good days
Will return

And every cloud
Has silver linings
And every minus has a plus
They'll be good times
They'll be bad
It's the same for all of us

We're given what we need to grow
Enough to almost fall apart
But riding through it helps us know
A kind and gentle loving heart
