For Every

For every cup, a saucer;
For every hat, a head.
For everyone who’s tired,
Both a pillow and a bed.

For every book, a reader;
For every foot, a shoe.
For everyone who’s sad, 
A chance to freshen and renew.

For every song, a singer;
For every play, a stage.
For everyone who’s trapped, 
A key to open up the cage.

For every cut, a Band-Aid;
For every tear, a kiss.
For everyone who’s stressed, 
A month when nothing is amiss.

For every bee, a flower;
For every breeze, a kite.
For everyone with things to say,
A chance to sit and write.

    And every sound an ear. So when we have something to say. There'll be somebody there to hear. :)

    I love this poem. Right out of the second book of Ecclesiastes. Where in the world did you find it. LOL. You have written a masterpiece here.
