An Act Of Kindness

Sadness presses deeply
Into each painful image
They left behind

The aloneness created
Falls like thousands
Of endless pounds upon her soul

Her heart screams into the silence
But only echoes of tears return

For each sadness expressed
That others wished was joy
Brings more sadness

A reminder of the disappointment
Her sorrow has become

Searching desperately for hope
In a smile or eye contact
Of another human being
For proof that her soul has survived
That she has any value or worth

A kiss of joy is found
In each act of kindness received

With each touch of the soul
Life breathes into heart ache
A reprieve!
