Live for Others

Live for others while on earth you live,
Give for others what you have to give.
Flowers do not hoard their sweet perfume,
Nor withhold the glory of their bloom.

Sunshine helps to melt the winter’s snow,
Timely rain compels the grain to grow;
So a smile can banish grief and care,
And a kindly word encourage prayer.
