Charlieku

Life is so 
  fleeting
    why do we waste
        chances for
           kindness
              perfectly placed?

Love is no 
   use if
      left undeclared.
         By words or
            deeds it
               needs to be shared.

And if our 
   hearts seek
       genuine peace,
           pride, hate and envy
               first need release.

Happiness
   comes when
       with thankful hearts,
           we share with 
               others
                   gifts God imparts.

Thus if we
   act with
      goodwill and grace
         we’ll leave this
             world a 
                far better place.
