A mother’s kind word and a pat on the head
Or reading to children just before bed
A father’s quick hug or a kiss on the cheek
Spending some time playing hide and go seek
Baking cookies with Grandma while singing a song
Books read by Grandpa all the day long
A comforting hand when someone is sad
Or a spank on the butt when someone is bad
A special connection ‘tween husband and wife
Sharing and caring through all of their life
When a husband will grill or mop up a floor
Will vacuum, do dishes, cleans bathrooms and more
Checking on shut-ins is not a hard task
Staying your distance and wearing your mask
It’s a word or a smile wherever you go.
Be kind to your neighbor. Let your love show.
Love is a noun but can be a verb too,
It’s great when you say it but better to do.
