One Never Knows

Wise words from Edgar A. Guest to inspire us to be kind, to do good deeds as one never knows the impact. Be inspired by this poem.

One Never Knows
Poet: Edgar A. Guest

One never knows
How far a word of kindness goes;
One never sees
How far a smile of friendship flees.
Down, through the years,
The deed forgotten reappears.

One kindly word
The souls of many here has stirred.
Man goes his way
And tells with every passing day,
Until life's end:
'Once unto me he played the friend.'

We cannot say
What lips are praising us to-day.
We cannot tell
Whose prayers ask God to guard us well.
But kindness lives
Beyond the memory of him who gives
