You never know what other people see,
When you give time to another human being.
You never know what other people hear,
When you whisper “You’re amazing” in their ear.
You never know what other people think,
When you’re with a friend and abstain from a drink.
You never know what other people dream,
When your smile turns their frown into a gleam.
You never know what other people say,
When you dispense of how your pain melted away.
You never know how others too might act,
When you tell how the wrong way brought you back.
You never know how many tears you’ll bring,
When speaking of those who make your heart sing.
You never know beliefs you just might shape,
By ripping off what’s held your soul in place.
You never know whose life you saved tonight,
By listing tips that helped you quit a vice.
You never know how far your love will grow,
Till you share who taught you “let it go”.
Cause you never know who God has put in place,
Or whose story might be their saving grace.
You see, it’s not about how many likes you get,
Due to this thing we call the domino effect
And if just one person takes in what you say,
You never know how many hearts He’ll change.
It’s those dots we keep trying to connect,
Which are already laid out in retrospect.
For in God’s plan He’s the only one who sees,
Each “You never know” played out just perfectly.
So do not second guess of what you share,
Cause you never know which dots it’s meant to pair.
