They Stand Among Us

They stand among us, coming in and out
Leaving faint memories, and no airs about  

They touch our lives and subtly so
They’re meek, they’re gentle, no worldly glow 

They nurture our ideas, unwittingly guide us
They assist along, no complaints, no fuss 

All along in our lives, and yet not in our way
“Pure thoughts” are the means, how they convey 

No pretense, no act, just selfless and giving
“Love” they exude and their only purpose for living 

They stand among us, not heavy, not tall
Yet with invisible footprints, they lead us all
