One Kind Word

February 12, 2011
One kind word can heal a hurt
One kind word can warm the heart
One kind word can brighten a day
One kind word can build someone up
One kind word can mean a lot

One kind word shows we care
One kind word shows we’re there
One kind word shows us the face of happiness
One kind word shows us the joy of life
One kind word shows it can mean a lot

One kind word causes happiness
One kind word causes friendship
One kind word causes peace
One kind word causes love
One kind word causes joy

If one kind word
does all this
and can cause so much happiness
why isn’t it done
more often

It’s not
too hard
too out of our way
too time-wasting
or too word-wasting

It’s just a matter of
‘wasting’ a second
or two
or at most three
and one kind word

Blimey!!! I have this motley of emotions churning inside me!! Happiness- in reading the ideology of your poem, and sadness- as to why it did not get selected for the print magazine!!! I just wonder from where did you get  such innovative ideas for this poem. My guesses-:

1. You are naturally talanted.

2. You are superbly talanted.

3. Both!!!!!!

Too true! This poem was so sweet! Loved how it had that rhythm (did I spell that right?) all throughout, and it sounds great when read aloud. I definitely agree!!! We should say one kind word every day!!! :)
