Life Lessons

Travel softly in this world;

leave no trace of tears but only

the memory of your smile, your voice

a record of your years.

Keep peace with all around you

human and all otherkind, wage no war

and do no harm with hasty deed

or cruel mind.

Seek the quiet places in your heart,

spread balm when pain has lain, gentle

touch the trembling hand

to know its living is not in vain.

Travel softy, speak with grace

and hear the wisdom of the old,

bring comfort to the ones in need;

in humbleness be bold.
