Quiet gifts touch the spirit and heart.
Absolutely free, not costing a penny
taking only a few moments from the day.
A soft touch to the shoulder
quietly holding hands
a warm hug when least expected.
Quiet gifts of love and appreciation.
Sitting still and listening
walking slowly hand in hand
watching children play in the park.
Quiet gifts of life.
Quiet gifts touch heart and soul
give meaning to life and love.
Honesty, trust and appreciation
are truly quiet gifts of the heart.
