A Gentle Tongue

The positive power
Of kind words is open
To us all in interactions
Along our paths each day.
It is easy to employ
With a minimal effort
And reaches depths of
Need which little else may.
Recognition, sincere compliments,
Appreciation, courtesy, when planted
Within hearts often begin later
To spring forth to the recipient’s gain.
What is given though with no
Return benefit immediately,
Raises joy finding us later
Enhancing the living of our days.
