    Kindness In A Candy Jar

    by David Knape

    She did something out of the blue
    giving to friends or strangers who
    might need a lift, a hand or two
    an act of kindness to those due

    Those chosen were the folks who served
    who never got the thanks deserved
    who had misfortune come their way
    only needed it to go away

    Just candy in a candy jar
    small gifts of love is what they were
    her thoughts and words went into each
    knowing that a heart they'd reach

    Ribbons wrapped them, round and round
    and lace was placed upon their crown
    and each was given to endear
    each evoked a heartfelt tear

    Each jar of candy really was
    an act of kindness, just because
    like light from any twinkling star
    her love shone brightly in each jar

    Now we can't claim to be so smart
    we only know that kindness works
    and knowing that, all I can say
    is kindness seems to work both ways.
