Communication has a vital part.
It touches every person’s heart.
If one would only try to see
how critical it can be.
If one would think before they spoke–
If one would laugh or tell a joke–
If one would lend a listening ear
or speak words of comfort or cheer–
If one would go the extra mile
to dry a tear or crack a smile–
what a difference it could make
to help a burden dissipate.
If one could touch a heart or soul
they might help to make it whole.
If one would offer a helping hand–
If one would help a crippled one stand–
then others might begin to see
How vital communication can be.
If one would give a hat or glove
to meet a need with a gift of love–
then one might understand, at least in part,
communication’s impact on the human heart.
