Gentle Goodbye

You were touched by a kind soul-

You touched hers just the same.

A smile without any words-

A face without any name.

These things, they matter not,

for in the end we see-

What makes our lives go on,

Is our loving memory.

So smile at those you see-

as your neighbor did to you.

Hold the door for one in need-

And it'll come back to you.

You gave to her the gift-

of your gentle, caring ways.

I'm sure that while in heaven

She'll remember those precious days.

When you passed her in the hallway,

when you cared enough to say "hi".

You gave her more than you know;

Your love as a gentle goodbye.

Don't be misled. Remember that you can't ignore God and get away with it. You will always reap what you sow!
(Galatians 6:7 NLT)
