A little ditty about empathy and compassion.


(The saints among us)


All good things must run their course
And reach their final end.
So say the laws that govern us,
Which no one can amend.

We weep for sorrow not our own,
In love of fellow man.
And on these empathetic hearts
You can impose no ban.

For they can sense the tender need
Within a mind or heart.
And from compassion for such ones
These men will never part.
