Thank You for Your Kindness

Unassuming and not easy,

simple and not sleazy,

gratefulness preserves from sadness…

“Thank you for your kindness”

Struggling with his luggage forward,

she helped without a word.

He smiled, relieved by the fineness…

“Thank you for your kindness”

To feel good, I watch what I eat,

it’s not an easy feat.

She bends the menu for rightness…

“Thank you for your kindness”

“Please, will you play with me?”

entails a rough response.

On all four, I crawl with lightness…

“Thank you for your kindness”

What to watch? is a packed question,

a boggling suggestion.

Jointly we explore to find us…

“Thank you for your kindness”

Negotiating helps parenting,

and, too, grandparenting.

We value softness and mildness…

“Thank you for your kindness”

And again, he wants to know “why?”

Conviction must reply.

She speaks with endless politeness…

“Thank you for your kindness”

Does airport ride imposition

sour disposition?

No, she insists and helps bind us…

“Thank you for your kindness”

Well, for years I was smart. I recommend pleasant. You may quote me." Well, for years I was smart, oh so very smart, I too recommend pleasant - Trust the harmony
