The Way We Affect Others

          We may not always realize
          that everything we do,
          affects not only our lives,
          but touches others too.

          A single happy smile
          can always brighten up the day,
          for anyone who happens
          to be passing by your way.

          And a little bit of thoughtfulness
          that shows someone you care,
          creates a ray of sunshine
          for both of you to share.

          Yes, every time you offer
          someone a helping hand,
          every time you show a friend
          you understand.

          Every time you have a kind
          and gentle word to give,
          you help someone to find beauty
          in this precious life we live.

          For happiness brings happiness
          and loving ways bring love,
          and giving is the treasure,
          that contentment is made of.
