Because We All Need That

We should be to others
What we wish them to be
A hug, a hand of helpfulness
Compassion, sympathy,

A shoulder to lean on
An ‘I prayed for you’ smile
A kind word of encouragement,
A ‘walk the second mile’

We should be to others
A ‘you can do it’ pat
A patient, listening fellow-friend
Because we all need that

What we wish others would do for us
We should make certain we are doing for them
