Featuring Local Poet: Debbi-Ruth Hobbs

Helping Hands

Lift a hand to help our brothers
when you see the need is there
You can make the load much lighter
when you show how much you care

It's the simple little gestures
that reveal the inner soul
Like the pieces of a puzzle
we're a part of one big whole

Like a thousand candles burning
on a path to guide us home
If we walk the road together
we will never walk alone

Lift a hand to help each other
find a gap and fill the need
When the joy is in the giving
it becomes a lift indeed

Debbi-Ruth Hobbs

This is so neat!  A new online friend, Debbi, who lives in our little town, found my website and submitted this poem that she wrote a while back.  Debbi said that she loves to volunteer and help others.  One of the things that she enjoys is making baby clothes for children in need.

Thank you, Debbi!  If you have a poem that you would like to see on here, please email me at:   
Posted poetry must be positive, clean, and your own work.  Thanks!
