Poetry

It’s all about the little things…

She needed help
But she was ignored.
She was ready
To give us a bad review.
I ran to her assistance
Not because I feared
Negative word of mouth
But because I love
Making people happy.

She was thoroughly satisfied
With my efforts.
She thanked me profusely.
She asked for my name.
She wanted to tell the world
How good she felt to be cared for.
It just hurt that she was dismissed before
As just a bothersome senior citizen.

It warmed my heart to know
I was given the chance
To make her happy.
Saturday March 4 2017 
Was indeed a great day.
Paying attention
To the little things
Was the most important
Lesson of the day.

Smile worthy smiles
Do worthy dos
Life is short
We only live once
Feel your feel
