FUNERAL READINGS

Kindness

Kindness is like a baton
Passed from soul to soul

Some run the race and pass
The baton without hesitation
Their kindness as keen
As the speeding flash
Of a powerful messenger

Others want to keep the stick
And find it difficult to pass
They need to think
Decide, analyse
They only know
A kind of kindness

You ran the race
And passed the baton
Without hesitation
Setting standards
Entirely effortlessly

Your team
Were swept up
By your compassion
Arriving and departing
Entirely effortlessly

Because of you
The gift of kindness
Will pass
From generation
To generation
From one good soul
To another
