Quite often,
We give thought 
to the meaning of mitzvah,
not thoughts loosely thrown,
but deeds with passionate undertone,
that give the good in life a dressing,
it rewards with Godly blessing.

Oft given,
it's a balm for the heart
when the unfortunate occurs,
it may be a mitzvah in rise,
becoming God's 'word for the wise'.
Though many tears have been wept
we graciously accept.

A mitzvah, in deed
is not just a token,
but a gift from the heart,
with best intent, not for show,
most important to know
that mitzvahs are God sent,
for true mitzvahs never end.
