Offer Kindness: a tenderness of the heart song

Be kind whenever possible. It is always possible. ~Dalai Lama

offering kindness

offering kindness

Tuff guys with edgy attitudes
brought whimpering to their knees
from tiniest of desert thorns,
minuscule micro organisms,
even unpleasant sounds, as words.

Yet, new possibilities
in each fresh moment
are created with kind actions
of body, speech and mind.

Intention to love
instantly changing the channel
from unpleasant, annoying sounds
to calming and healing tunes.

I’m offering my heart-song
to those who will listen.
Created in a moment of inspiration
with friends and some interplay.
Hope you enjoy watching!   (Lyrics below)

Living things are so fragile
so easily hurt
smiling to life from sky down to dirt

Offer kindness
tenderness of the heart
offer kindness, gentle kindness

Sometimes I feel so fragile
so easily hurt
so quickly I forget life’s worth

Offer kindness
tenderness of the heart
offer kindness, gentle kindness

New possibilities
can you see?
New possibilities, new possibilities

Living things are so fragile
so easily hurt
let us live in harmony with earth

Offer kindness
tenderness of the heart
offer kindness
new possibilities
Find forgiveness
new possibilities
offer kindness
gentle kindness.

    Need I tell you how kind a soul you already are? At times like this, I feel glad to have bumped into your blog. I believe it not only takes inspiration, but also courage to be kind. The quote by Dalai Lama is so true and a much needed reminder. 🙂

    Hi, Smile!
    After reading your wise words and lyrics, I clicked the play button. My husband immediately sat up and took happy notice. I was sorry to have disrupted his happy studying, but glad to offer him your kindness. Thank you for your presence in our lives.
    Smiles!

      thank you for your kind words, eM!
      as I recall my dog used to get up
      when I would start singing and playing,
      although she was heading out to
      a quieter place to continue napping 🙂

    What a wonderful song, thanks for sharing this melody of the heart. I found it very uplifting to listen to, and somehow it felt very tender and real. Thanks for the quote too – a wonderful reminder. It is always possible; not always easy, but always possible – and always worthwhile. Hugs and gratitude, Harula xxxx

    Fantabulous – I’ve often pondered on how hard and fragile life is and how many different ways we find to make it harder for each other – sometimes without even meaning too – –
    🙂
