A Kind Act


I went over to a family friend's house today

She has a heart of gold,

Today was her birthday

A true friend to behold.

I did something out of the ordinary

Something for her to treasure,

I gave her an autographed book of poetry

Her happiness wasn't anything that could be measured.

She thanked me for the gesture of kindness

But told me to keep it for myself,

Her face held a smile of softness

But I insisted she keep it, I have one home on the shelf.

Happy Birthday Hazel. :o)
She is a wonderful soul. Her husband passed away 3 weeks ago tomorrow. They were together for 25 years or more.
