Beacons of hope and reassurance
signposts to safety and warmth
bright glow on the horizon of dark nights and turbulent seas
restorers of faith, confidence and strength
dispellers of anguish, fear and despair
shining guides of the lost.
Did you realize
that just your kind smile from the heart
transforms you into a lighthouse
and helps change the view of the many
to believe in a secure world
and in the goodness of man?
Did you know it even touches the indifferent?
