Hand of friendship

You hold out a hand of friendship

to everyone you meet.

Sometimes it is taken

sometimes it is not.

The ones that refuse never know

what they might miss.

If that outstretched hand,

may have belonged to an Angel waiting there.

Someone who would have helped

unburden some of their load.

So the next time someone puts out a hand of friendship,

grasp it readily.

For you will never know if the stranger is really an Angel there.
