straight from my heart and soul

IF YOU HAVE A FRIEND

If you have a friend worth loving,
Love him! Yes, and let him
know
That you love him, ere life’s
evening
Tinge his brow with sunset
glow.
Why should good words ne’er be
said
Of a friend – till he is dead?

If you hear a song that thrills you,
Sung by any child of song,
Praise it! Do not let the singer
Wait deserved praises long.
Why should one thrills your
heart.
Lack the joy you may impart?

If you hear a prayer that moves
you
By its humble, pleading tone,
Join it! Do not let the seeker
Bow before its God alone.
Why should not your brother share
The strength of “two or three” in
prayer?

If you see the hot tears falling
From a brother’s weeping eyes,
Share them! And by kindly sharing
Own your kinship in the skies.
Why should anyone be glad
When a brother’s heart is sad?

If a silvery laugh goes rippling
Through the sunshine on his
face,
Share it! ‘Tis the wise man’s
saying –
For both grief and joy a place.
There’s health and goodness in
the mirth
In which an honest laugh has
birth.

If your work is made more easy
By a friendly, helping hand,
Say so! Speak out brave and truly
Ere the darkness veil the land.
Should a brother workman dear
Falter for a word of cheer?

Scatter thus your seeds of kindness
All enriching as you go –
Leave them! Trust the Harvest-
Giver;
He will make each seed to
grow.
So, until the happy end,
Your life shall never lack a friend.
