It may not come immediately
Nor from the obvious source,
But the LAW applies unfailingly
Through some invisible force.
Whatever you feel about another,
Be it love or hate or passion,
Will surely bounce right back to you
In some clear or secret fashion.
If you speak about some person,
A word of praise or two,
Soon tons of other people
Will speak kind words to you.
Our thoughts are broadcasts of the soul,
Not secrets of the brain.
Kind ones bring us happiness;
Petty ones, untold pain.
Giving works as surely
As reflections in a mirror.
If hate you send, hate you'll get back;
But loving brings love nearer.
Remember, as you start this day,
And duty crowds your mind,
That kindness comes so quickly back
To those who first are kind!
Let that thought and this one direct
You through each day...
The only things we ever keep
Are the things we give away!
