Lots of things can get us down
At times too many are around
we find ourselves getting depressed
when there may be nothing we can do.
If that’s the case, prayer is there
but often there is something too
that we can add on top of prayer
to do whatever we can do
to benefit ourselves and others too
chores, our writings, entertainment too
you never know what you may offer
that could cheer up a suffering other.
It may not cure them, it may not solve
but it can relieve, it can be a salve.
It won’t take much, an easy touch,
To cheer ourselves and others.
