Cause and Effect

You know not what you have started
With your simple gesture of love
Like a spark to start an ignition
Came crashing down from above
A warmth from within began
A smile to share with another
All this from your small touch
This connected one to the other
With sadness lifted I went on
And helped a small, scared child
His foot within a train track stuck
When his play was a bit too wild
Now this child is a full grown man
A doctor so well reknown
Saving lives with his trade
Compassion and love is shown
Without the love you gave to me
This story could not start
But you reached out to touch
The core of this crying heart
So now the boy lives on
Touching lives as he goes
The story never ending
It will never close
So stop and think each day
For in all we say and do
The story keeps unfolding
What will this mean to you
