The Fairest Gift

Written By: Krisha Gohil


Of all the things a person may give,

Kindness will be the fairest of all.

It doesn’t count the pennies in your pockets,

Nor measure the extent of your talents.

Intentions are its only needs,

With good ones it‘ll be at your door.

In its maternal embrace you’re no longer an orphan,

In its fatherly sight you’re always looked after.

You’ll read about it like the March sisters,

And lighten the burdens on your pilgrimage.
