Act of Kindness

The little things can warm a heart
And help a friend in need.
I sat and thought
Who needs this help?
At a horrible time
My vulnerable neighbour
That is who
We collected her shopping
And placed it on the doorstep
Stepped back and waited
She opened the door with a smile on her face and thanked us
We know she is lonely on her own
But I will always be there to help her through the tough time
I try to make her smile
And let her know she’s not alone
We talk and I tell her this will only be for awhile
She watches from afar as we play outside
A smile set widely upon her face
Again, I say this will pass
But until then please stay safe.
