Quiet Example


Tis an interesting thing to consider yet

The value of a quiet example set


Like the crystal streams, or the mountain air

Consistent, constant, always there


Blessing every soul who happens by

Never asking who, never asking why


Giving joy just by being who they simply are

Giving light through the night like a brilliant star


Giving hope to the crowd in the dark abyss

Yes, it’s interesting to consider this


For life has afforded me such a gift -

A path interwoven with those who lift


A chance to observe and a chance to learn

What it means to care. What it means to turn


Away from the world and it’s foolish pride

Yes, the thought of this makes me look inside


And give thanks on high that I’m in the debt

Of those who a quiet example set
