Small Things We Do
By Don Iannone

A simple smile
can bring
a burst of sunshine
in life's darkest hour.

A hearty laugh
can chase away
evil dragons lurking
under the bed.

Ever so small
words of kindness
can melt

a frozen tundra of anger.

The gentle touch
of a loving hand
can set
the heart ablaze.

The knowing wink
of an eye
can cause trust
to re-enter a room.

Small things
we do
can change
the world.
