The kindling of some precious thoughts
Like sparks upon a lamp
They set to life a flame of hope
That soon makes dry from damp

As kindness spreads it's magic glow
From lamp to lamp I've chased
From heart to heart and mind to mind
No greater love I've placed

I share my warmth with many
In truth should well be spread
Through words of tender careing
Upon our world be said

So listen to some heartsent words
I speak to young and old
And cease the silence known so long
In passion's power hold

I spread one flame from this old lamp
I've made it pleasant task
And place within each heart I meet
A gift that's meant to last.
