To Give Is To Receive - Poem by Denis Pyle

Lips that give compliments
in order to cheer
Is better than lips
that only can sneer
A kindly word spoken
to a friend, stranger of foe
leads to a better path forward
through lifetime to go
Care for the loneliest
who only know strife
let them experience
some joy in their life.
You lose nothing by giving
a kindly word, friendly smile
You'll find you get deeper meaning
to a life that's worthwhile.
So reap a rich harvest
with the kindnesses you have sown
making other lives happy
as well as your own.
