The Power of Small Deeds


I could slow my pace

And stop staring at the ground

I could look for grace

And expect it to be found

I could make some tea

Just enough to go around

I could stop to see

Ordinary as profound


I could ease the care

Of someone who needs a song

I could speak some hope

When the darkness lasts too long

I could share a smile

To remind us we are strong

I could, so I will

This was needed all along
