Unexpected gifts, far and few,
Arrive when we need them most.
They come in many forms,
Not always wrapped in ribbons and bows.
Sometimes it’s a kind deed from a stranger,
A smile aimed your way when you are down,
Other times it’s sweet words or a hug
From someone we hold dear.
Mine came in an emoticon, something so simple,
Which made me smile and restored hope.
Something I was running low on.
May you receive an unexpected gift
Which makes your day, restores you,
And just makes you feel all warm inside.
