We'd have helping hands that lead,
Open arms accepting those in need,
Not fingers pointing out misdeeds.
We'd have tender lips full of smiles,
Gently speaking the truth instead of lies,
Not a caustic tongue that beguiles.
We'd have eyes keen for good results,
And not leering eyes that insult,
Or ones always searching for faults.
We'd have a gentle soul willing to forgive,
A tender heart that offers reprieve,
Not one that is flinty and stiff.
We'd have goodwill with our fellow being,
Get by with even those who seem mean,
And enjoy peace without and within.
