Where is my heart these days…
Gone in many directions, in many ways.
Help is needed, compassion too
Just look around, there’s lots we can do.
I’ve seen the snow angels
In my neighbourhood.
Their work has been tiring,
But the results are truly good.
I’ve seen a car slip and slide
Instantly, a cheerful crew of help arrived!
Has a new neighbour moved in next door?
Go pay a friendly visit, take fruit and cookies galore.
Remember to listen more than to speak
It’s the reason we have one mouth, two ears
People can tell when you sincerely care
In efforts to calm their troubles and fears.
The cost to help others is your time.
We do have a surplus these days
I’m sure you’ll agree
The peace in your heart, a gift from above
It’s a sweet heavenly valentine to you and to me.
