The Greatest Gift Is Love - Poem by Velmar Pewee Hale Johnson

You know love is kind of funny and can be expressed in so many different ways,
you can say it as much as you want too in beautiful special ways.
Bringing someone flowers, or just a kiss upon the hand,
can mean that someone loves you, whether you are a woman, or a man.
A pat upon the back, or someone tells you thank you when you're through,
can mean so much that someone really cares, and loves you.
But the greatest gift is not a gift to you, nor a thank you in return,
but just knowing that you've helped someone is all you'll need to earn.
So remember when you see someone, and lend a helping hand,
for of all the gifts that you can give, this is the greatest gift of man.
