Don’t forget
the words of kindness
others have spoken to you;

Don’t forget
those in need of kindness;
speak kindly to them.

Don’t forget
the many who helped you
in your time of need;

Don’t forget
to help the one
who is in need that you know.

Don’t forget
the prayers of concern
someone offered for you;

Don’t forget
to pray for those
you know who are in need.

Don’t forget—
life is short,
it will soon be gone;

Don’t forget
to live for Christ
as this may be
the last day
you have.
