A smile is a gift from one passing
no awareness what it bestows
no notion where she walks
no knowledge what her shoulders carry
this gesture lifts
both giver and receiver’s spirits
in astonishing ways

A compliment to another
praises, acknowledges
vibrations stir long after
heartstrings glow with gladness
like sunshine breaking through
after storms

A prayer for someone dear
journeys to Heaven
illumines the path
bolsters courage and strength
unfound grace accompanies
guides in sacred ways

And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me. Matthew 25:40 KJV
