HANDS (A poem for kids of all ages)

 

When you think you’re small and there’s nothing to do,

You think you’re too young and no one needs you,

Think twice little one and look at your hand,

Shake it with someone and be a good friend.

 

When you think you have nothing to offer today,

Have no money, no job only two hands to play,

Think twice little one and write a nice letter,

Give it to someone to make them feel better.

 

When you think you can’t help and feel bad,

You think you can’t care for your own pet,

Wipe the tears of someone with your hand today,

Let your soft touch brighten somebody’s day.

 

When you feel your hands are too small to fix a thing,

You can’t even reach the water to wash in the sink,

Then stretch out your arms, open them wide and big,

There’s more power in a hug than you’d ever think.
