Kindness

If I have helped one lonely child along the road,  
If I have helped one weary soul to bear its load,
If I have changed one tear into a smile,
My life has been worth while and friendship formed.

If, when my work is done, at close of day,
Some one with flowers will come and say,
He has been understood and helped me bear my pain,
We have not lived in vain.

(Aaron Sweet, 1854-1937)
