Generosity of spirit is a rare treasure indeed,
And those who possess it are truly blessed indeed,
For they give their time and their attention,
With kindness and care, without any mention.
Their eyes are focused, their ears attuned,
To the stories and struggles of others, never immune,
To the needs and wants of those they meet,
Generosity of attention, their heartbeats.
They listen with intent, not just to reply,
But to truly understand, without any lie,
They hold the space, for others to share,
Without judgment or bias, they show they care.
Generosity of attention, a true gift,
A listening ear, can provide an emotional lift,
To those who feel unseen or unheard,
Generous listeners, provide a soothing word.
Their hearts are open, their minds engaged,
With empathy and compassion, they are enraged,
At the injustices, the pain and the strife,
Generosity of attention, can change a life.
For those who give their attention so freely,
Are the ones who inspire us to see,
The beauty and worth, of each human being,
Generosity of attention, forever freeing.
So let us be generous with our attention,
And listen with care, without apprehension,
For in doing so, we can make a difference.
