An act of kindness 

The bus driver waits
as the late passenger scurries for the bus. 

In a nearby street
bouquets of flower are tied to a tree,
remembering a dear friend that has fallen.
A child cries and mother wipes the tears away. 

An act of kindness,
someone is thoughtful,
someone cares.

Can one kind act save the world?
Yes…I think it has…
Heavenly kindness.
Amen.
