The Selfless Acts of Courage

autumn-1920x1200

To give all you have left,

to someone who needs it more,

like a smile when they’re low,

or a simple pat on the back,

The selfless acts of courage,

of sympathy, empathy, of love,

two words said in goodwill,

are enough to give someone a lot,

For he is a great man, who spends a million,

who gives the gift of life,

but even if he gave a candy, a smile,

his grandeur would stay the same.

Material magnanimity, grand gestures aside,

goodwill in the heart can turn back time (and tide)
