Heartprints

      Whatever our hands touch---
      We leave fingerprints!
      On walls, on furniture,
      On doorknobs, dishes, books,
      As we touch we leave our identity.
     
      Oh please where ever I go today,
      Help me leave heartprints!
      Heartprints of compassion
      Of understanding and love.
      Heartprints of kindness
      and genuine concern.
     
      May my heart touch a lonely neighbor
      Or a runaway daughter,
      Or an anxious mother,
      Or, perhaps, a dear friend!
     
     I shall go out today
      To leave heartprints,
      And if somone should say
      "I felt your touch,"
      May that one sense be...YOUR LOVE
      Touching through ME.
