We all tend to take each other’s mental and physical wellbeing for granted. We often ask but without conviction ‘How are you?’ and receive the usual response ‘I’m fine, I’m OK’. This has prompted me to express some sentiments in verse.
LIFE’S CRUEL BLOWS ©
When life deals the cruellest blow.
And what you know
Is not yours to share.
When sorrow runs deep,
All you can do is show you care.
In the bleakest times,
Speaking in rhymes
Seems a tad trite.
Try as you might,
You cannot see the light.
You can just about cope.
Simply touch, hug, and give authentic love.
A gentle kiss and above all this,
A tiny spark of hope.
Because in this moment we see.
It is not just you and me.
It is We and so much more.
For, in such times it is humanity itself.

Be kind in business as well as in life generally. You never know what someone is going through.
