Tracks of a Wandering Mind

Poetry, stories and random thoughts from a wandering mind.

Small Gifts

One dim light in the darkest gloom
Can brighten up the night.
One slight smile in a somber room
Finds grace in every sight.

One kind thought in a careless crowd
Can bring such hope to life.
One small hope in the face of doubt
Can drive off failure’s fright.

The greatest gift of kindness shown
That turns a heart of stone,
Can be with bitter words undone
To seed doubt where hope had grown.

Mark you well the gifts you give
That they might find good grace,
And by gentle word then live
That all might see your faith.
