Poetry: A Kind Heart Can Change The World

A Kind Heart Will Change The World

She was a simple doll

Fallen astray

Perhaps left behind by a careless child

Perhaps abandoned by a traveling family

My Grandmother saw this doll as a lost soul

A lost orphan could not be left alone in the cold without a home

The beaches of Hawaii grew chilly at night

It was no place for an orphan

She needed a home

Canada with my Grandmother was just the place

This doll traveled far to find her majestic new home

Where she was taken care of by the best hands God has ever constructed

Clothed in my grandmothers hand stitched attire

Clothes my Grandmother eagerly created

Especially for this doll

Natalie now rightfully had a home

This orphan doll deserved to feel special

My grandmother was intent on making her feel so

Clothes designed with my Grandmothers touch

Ensured she would always be warm

Fashionable to ensure the granddaughter would always choose Natalie to play

Natalie deserved love

A warm home

A cozy bed to sleep

A beautiful soul to love her

Years have past since the dolls arrival

Yet in my mind I can still hear clear as a bell

My grandmother reciting her tale of heroics and rescue

My thoughts while hearing her tale

Of her unconditional love and kindness

Of her selflessness and devotion for all things in the world

That is my Grandmother

What others looked past

What others disregarded

My Grandma found beauty in

She made sure to always repay the beauty of this world with her love

Simplicity was perfection

The Grandchild is now grown

Natalie still sits perched in my bedroom

Full of love and light just as my Grandmother had taught

I live inspired

I know

A kind heart like my Grandmothers

Will change the world.
