A Kindness Poem

Just lend a hand to the one in need Put a balm on the cut of the left palm Give your lips to the hearts that bleed On the torn canvas paint a Psalm That day on the bus to the 3rd street I kept standing an arthritic knee A girl for a while looked at it Offered a seat with her eyes in glee An old man sinking on the dirty sands Foul smell from his gasping breath Mother Teresa held him in her smiling hands A glint in his eyes he met his death Storms raged in my sounds of fear A heart-shaped woman’s face held me tight Whispered the velvet words into my ear Roses of delight I smelt that night Just broaden your room as much as you can Fill the air with the scent of your love You will be an angel, whether beast or man The cold hands will have their gloves --------------------------------------------------------------------------- 8 June , 2020 Kindness Poetry Contest Sponsored by: Regina Riddle
