A Simple Act

It’s such a simple act – a touch.
Yet, it can tell a heart so much.
A gentle brush of finger tips
can say more than words from your lips..

A mother’s touch can reassure
a child who wakes up, that's unsure
that what he fears was just a dream
and not the monsters that they seem.

A simple touch says “I love you”
erasing doubts. Feelings renew
that fills with joy a youthful heart
and brings together those apart.

For the homeless in the street,
who beg for change so they can eat
a touch can mean “I understand.”
Such is the power of a hand.

For the lonely and the sad
this simple act can make them glad.
It says have faith, you’re not alone
in a way that’s always known.

Compassion, caring - silent speech;
such power is within your reach.
It’s such a simple act – a touch.
Yet, it can tell a heart so much.
