Only take what you need as forward you travel,
Don't weigh yourself down with the woe of the past,
Decide that your heart will have room to be happy,
With space for good memories, ones that will last.
Don't let past misfortunes stifle your dreaming,
And stop you from reaching as high as you can,
But use them as stepping stones to your life's purpose,
The journey you started when your life began.
Let the lessons you learn add depth to your living,
Begin to reach out to all those passing by,
A smile given lovingly could be a blessing,
And help someone give something just one more try.
Reach out through your own pain to someone in crisis,
By touching a hand you are touching a heart,
You might never know just how your intervention
Enabled another to make a new start.
So when someone says they can never repay you,
For all you have said, or for all you have done,
Just quietly say there's one way this can happen,
Through sharing a blessing by passing it on.
