Itís one of my poems that has a special meaning to me.


Be kind, Little one.

Everyday when the day arises,
Give it your best of smiles,
For itís indeed the secret ingredient.

︒𐬹︒𐬹︒𐬹︒𐬹︒︒𐬹︒𐬹︒𐬹︒𐬹︒

As you lift yourself of your bed,
Be thankful for all ,
Even the most simplest of things;

︒𐬹︒𐬹︒𐬹︒𐬹︒︒𐬹︒𐬹︒𐬹︒𐬹︒

Simplest of flowers,
often always are left to drift away;
Within timeís passive,
Ever changing rivers.

︒𐬹︒𐬹︒𐬹︒𐬹︒︒𐬹︒𐬹︒𐬹︒𐬹︒

Be gentle to yourself,
For where else can seeds
Of such rarity be found?

︒𐬹︒𐬹︒𐬹︒𐬹︒︒𐬹︒𐬹︒𐬹︒𐬹︒

As you walk these busy streets;
Look upon the sky,
Remember; Always remember,
As infinitely vast those skies are;
So are you;


︒𐬹︒𐬹︒𐬹︒𐬹︒︒𐬹︒𐬹︒𐬹︒𐬹︒

Never stop being curious ,
Dare to chart islands within you;
Despite the stormís pleas to return
Despite the sunís comfortable offers.

︒𐬹︒𐬹︒𐬹︒𐬹︒︒𐬹︒𐬹︒𐬹︒𐬹︒

Be kind Little One.

For itís an adventure worthwhile.
