One Deed Of Kindness

A poem that challenges us to imagine what it would be like if we all did at least one deed of kindness each day. What a different world we would live in. One deed of kindness, one word of comfort, one look of compassion by us all each and every day would change this world, it would be like heaven on earth.

One Deed Of Kindness
Poet: Daniel C. Colesworthy

One deed of kindness every day
Be earnest to perform;
One mite give to the poor away —
One shelter from the storm.

One word of comfort speak to him
Whose brow is dark with care;
One smile for her whose eyes are dim
By sickness or despair.

One look of kind compassion give —
One motion or a sigh ;
One breath to bid the dying live —
One prayer to God on high.

What joy one moment may impart,
If it is spent aright!
One moment saves the broken heart
And puts despair to flight.

All can bestow most precious gifts —
The weak, the low, the poor;
The feeling heart from sorrow lifts
To Heaven's wide-open door.
