A Simple Act Of Charity

A simple act of charity
the giving of yourself.
No, it is not pity,
it is quite something else.

It is giving from your
mind, heart and soul.
Expecting nothing in return
no silver, jewels, or gold.

Love given will be love
returned in vast amounts.
It's not what you give
it's how you give that counts.

Charity is not just money
it is time, love and words.
It is a little piece of you
shared quietly, but heard.
