Reflecting the Light

It was only a song that she cheerily sang,
But a list'ning heart echoed the lay.
It was only a smile that illumined her face,
But another's reflected the ray.

It was only a kind, loving word that she spoke,
But it solaced a heart that was sad.
It was only the love-light that gleamed in her eyes,
But it made the lone wanderer glad.

It was only her purity, meek and unfeigned,
But it scattered sweet fragrance abroad;
And in child-like humility all the day long,
She communed with the angels of God.

So the day was made glad with the sunshine of Love,
As she labored on happy and gay;
And a sweet benediction flowed gently to all
Who but touched her or chanced in her way.
