Grace for you

There’s a certain kind of grace
That no one ever speaks about
A special type of kindness
That is never spoken of out loud

A grace that is in depth
Far beyond just superfluous words
The type that settles deep within
No wondering if there is more

The grace you show yourself
When things are hardly what they seem
When strangers kindness seem far off
And there’s only you that’s standing

Be gentle in your words
The ones you speak of to yourself
Be kind in your actions
No recipient more worthwhile

The grace we show ourselves
The gentle kindly word
Forgiveness, ease and laughter
Oh there’s so much we each deserve

Show yourself some grace
Take some kindness too
Days and seasons are hard enough
Be gentle on this precious you.
