Lessons You Learned
by Marlene Gerba
For every petal you pluck from a daisy,
You're granted one measure of love.
For every rainbow you find
with two ends,
I wish you two stars from above.
For every tear you brush from a cheek,
I promise you kindness will follow.
Wherever you walk,
under rainbow or stars,
Over daisies, or down lonely hollow.
For every child you play with
and talk to,
I grant you one heart full of
For every smile you
place on a face,
I promise you peace ever after.
If you think "I" am giving you
Look close at yourself and your deeds.
The gifts you earned were the lessons
While answering other folks' needs.
