Encouragement
by Douglas Malloch


I hold him dearest who aspires
To kindle in my heart the fires
Of best desires.

I hold the man of all most dear
Who, when I stumble, draweth near
With word of cheer.

I hold that man of best intents
Who giveth me not paltry pence,
But confidence.

For there are men who quick caress
Will give to laurel-crowned success -
To nothing less.

But, oh, how dearer far are they
Who help me on the upward way
When skies are gray.

If so it be that I attain
The mountain peak, and leave the plain
And paths of pain,

My prayers shall first be upward sent
For those dear friends of mine who lent
Encouragement.


Someone To Care
by Douglas Malloch


The greatest gift that is given to man
 Is someone to care;
When you hope and dream, when you work and plan,
Someone to care;
Someone to care when the day is long,
Someone to care when you're glad with song-
When the world goes right, when the world goes wrong,
Someone to care.

You can seek the top of the highest hill
With someone to care;
You can see the good, you can bear the ill
With someone to care.
The dark may come or the gale may sting
But, what the day or the night may bring,
You still are blessed with a sweeter thing -
Someone to care.

For never a loss will seem a loss,
With someone to care;
And never a cross will seem a cross,
With someone to care;
Someone to care when your heart is glad -
The ones who won were the ones who had
Someone to care.

We need not gold if we have but this
Someone to care;
We shall have our joy though the goal we miss,
With someone to care.
If there be but one with a faith that's true,
If there be but one who believes in you,
That love will lift and will bring you through-
Someone to care.

For what is the use of it all without
Someone to care?
When you're filled with hope or are dark with doubt
Someone to care?
What is the good, of it all unless
There's someone to share your happiness,
Someone to care when you win success,
Someone to care!
