Saving Grace


In passing the old man, by a fruit stand,

If in smiles or a greeting, we all show,

A lifting of his burdens, life may pose,

and this kindness by each, he will know.



In holding a door, or in lifting a load,

for the meek or the needy, we might see,

Makes a difference in our very existence,

and is the human, in you and in me.

Pass it on, pass it on.



When sharing with brothers and sisters,

we see an understanding and our care,

For in doing without the basics, they suffer,

their lives are lived in such a despair.



In offering our hands in a helping way,

and in our traveling of that extra, last mile,

We can change the frowns on all of the faces then,

in revealing a beautiful smile.

Pass it on, pass it on.



Just one single act in goodness can make,

a difference that may change our world,

A destruction of evil words, to be cleansed,

and a flag of brotherhood to be unfurled.



When we all pass on the power,

found within our hearts, a spirit of light and of grace,

We pass it on to our children then, in their future lives,

to preserve the whole human race.

Pass it on, pass it on.

      What can we do in this tough world full of turmoil and strife, we can pass on the goodness within us, to make an easier life.

      Yes, pass it on--good message in your poem. It takes one simple act of kindness, yet this passing on of kindness have a profound impact on people. Thanks and beautiful.

      Just today I was at the grocery standing at the Deli counter waiting for my number to be called, and a really nice looking young man, stepped aside and smiled so sweetly. For a split second we shared an acknowledgement of kindness. My day is complete. And I will pass it on.
