Acts of Kindness

Please take this blanket — let me think of you,
When in my bed tonight, a little warm
And take with it my heartfelt blessing, too
May it protect you from all further harm

Beyond what we have all unheeding done
Careless of your so precious happiness,
And all which, by a little kindness won
You might have had in better times us bless

Please take this jacket, take this bite of food
Which I my neighbors gathered from you for
Oh, may it do you some amount of good
Oh, how I wish it could be so much more!

But if ahead each one a little pay
It get us all will to that brighter day
