Sometimes the ‘little things’ are the big things, making all the difference to you – even during these difficult times we find ourselves In. I know you crave a good hug in a time of social distancing and time spent apart from your families.
I wrote the following poem during the first national lockdown last year, everyone was finding their own ways of coping and poetry was, and still is that outlet for me. Its ‘ok’ if you feel things are getting a bit too much during these unprecedented times. You’ve got this.
Thank you, it’s nice to be kind
A gentle smile, a heartfelt word, clears the cloud from my mind:
lifting me out of the darkest of places ‘thank you’ it’s nice to be kind.
A little text with those words “I’m here” travels the length of the earth –
the racing mind slowly calms from every word and its worth.
In a world portraying so much anger yet still has so much beauty,
spreading kindness every day is undoubtedly everyone’s duty.
Be kind you say, how hard is this in a world with so much confusion?
kindness helps one another, without the fear and intrusion.
To someone in need a simple hello or even a chat over tea –
is the greatest gift to make a person thrive and somewhat feel free.
A withered flower blossom’s again and is no longer blind,
Lifting me out of the darkest of places, ‘thank you’ it’s nice to be kind.
Clouds always pass
