To my dear friend, you know who you are,
Whose example is a kin to a shining star:
It brightened my mind and my soul it did lift,
So much good it does to see God’s great gift!
What is this gift, you might ask, that I see in you?
It is the gift that can turn all old things new...
You carry it in you and share it with others,
It lights up your face and I see an array of colours,
More valuable than a world full of silver,
What is it? The gift of being a giver!
Now, my friend, a few words of advice,
There are those who will always despise,
The gift you give them of yourself,
Remember then: He gave not for Himself!
Carry on and continue to give,
For it is in this way you will bring many to Heaven to live...
