The world is such a lonely place

When you’re feeling “upside down.”

No one stops to talk to you

If you wear a frown.

They see you as invisible,

Not even worth their while.

They turn their faces away,

When you try to smile.

They do not know the grief inside

You try so hard to carry,

Nor do they comprehend the pain

From losses that tarry.

It’s difficult to see at first

The strength that love can give

To broken-hearted souls that need

Great courage to live.

It takes a single moment

To bestow an act of kindness,

Yet, what others say and do

Often becomes timeless.
