Simple Things

11 Apr

It’s the simple things that mean so much,
a smile, a wink, a loving touch,
a phone call just to say “hello”
a note, a card, “I miss you so”

In times like these when the news is bad
when all the world is truly sad
when fear and anger rule the day
what is the best thing one can say?

Out of the turmoil, life will rise.
There will be brighter, clearer skies.
I won’t surrender to my fears.
In faith, I hope through all my tears.

The source of my strength is not my own
for, time after time, I’ve been clearly shown
that compassion and courage, reason and hope
are not simply values to help someone cope
but gifts we develop all through life
in the darkest times and the deepest strife.
Stay strong, be wise, do not despair.
There’s reason, yet, to firmly declare:

This stone will roll away, too.
