Mighty Metamorphosis or Torch-bearer


 I have a little book entitled Passages of Kindness; 
This quote is on the back cover ...


 A kind word is a treasure we can all afford


The kind word that you said to me
Shaped today’s gray into a smile
So I could brighten up and be
The light to someone else’s mile
And they in turn took heart and held
The hand of someone down and out
Where torch-and-burden-bearers meld
Into what love is all about
