Day 36

What is Gentleness?

The whisper of the breeze on my face,

The trickle of water down a stream.

The stillness of the dawn,

The warmth of the sun,

The hush of the dead of night,

The thoughts of a best friend.

It’s the intro of my favourite song,

The soft voice of my Nan;

It’s the laughter of a child

And someone’s listening ear.

A kind thought, a caring word,

Tea and sympathy.

The touch of a loved one.

Gentleness is your time, selflessly given;

It’s your prayers for another.

Gentleness is forgiveness and love,

May we let our gentleness be evident to all.
