WHEN KINDNESS GREETS
Its reality is awesome
Its gifts are highly priced
Its losses are colossal
Its pangs most excruciating.
When it beckons, the greatest bow
When it resonates, the bravest reels
When it shouts, the orator stutters
Such is the might of kindness.
In packages of paper, gold is wrapped
The careless, never notice it
The anxious never perceive it
But the patient waits and takes.
The kind hearted are always cherished
Their virtues envied
Their love savored with sweetness
But such hearts are rare to find.
Your kindness would forever resonate
The great and the small would honor you for it
But always the stories of your kindness
My lips would never cease to tell
(Written in Honor of Dillina Nnabuife)
