Another Little Something

Here is another little poem that will find a place on one of Little W’s walls…

 

Make me too brave to lie or be unkind.  Make me too understanding too, to mind the little hurts companions give, and friends, the careless hurts that no one quite intends.  Make me too thoughtful to hurt others so.  Help me to know the inmost hearts of those for whom I care, their secret wishes, all the loads they bear, that I may add my courage to their own.  May I make lonely folks feel less alone, and happier ones a little happier yet.  May I forget what ought to be forgotten; and recall, unfailing, all that ought to be recalled, each kindly thing, forgetting what might sting.  To all upon my way, day after day, let me be joy, be hope! Let my life sing!

(Mary Carolyn Davies)
