It is the kind of gift that keeps on giving.
It blesses both the recipient and the giver.
It is the kind of gift that costs the least
But its value is often beyond measure.
It is the kind of gift that understands the
Of living the day-to-day. And of ageing.
It is a smile communicating a message of
Of what it means to be sick, lonely, or scared.
It is a kind act freely given and with no
Of reciprocated kindness, or pay-back.
It is the joyous way by which one human
The load of another; saying, ‘You are not alone.’
