A message about gratitude: someone has helped you out along the line, pay it forward.


Someone gave me kindness;
Someone gave me kindness
Cancelled all my shyness
Someone gave me kindness.
And now that I am strong,
It’s time to pass along
My finest.

Someone helped me wake up;
Someone helped me wake up
Helped me after breakup
Someone helped me wake up
Now that I can see,
It’s down to you and me
To take up…

The flowering of our hearts
Connecting us to life,
The reason we were born
To open up our eyes,
The thankfulness we know
That we’ve been helped to stand
To find our peace together, hand in hand.

Someone gave us kindness;
Someone gave us kindness
Cancelled out our blindness
Someone gave us kindness
Now that we are strong,
It’s time to pass along
Our finest…
