Is anybody happier because you passed their way?
Is anybody happier because you spoke to them today?
Were you selfish plain and simple as you rushed along your way?
Or is someone mighty grateful for a deed you did today?
Can you say in parting with the day that’s slipping past
You helped a single person in the many that you’ve passed?
Is a single heart rejoicing over what you did or said?
Or is someone whose hopes were fading,
Now with courage looking ahead?
Did you waste a day or lose it, was it well or poorly spent?
Did you leave a trail of kindness, or a scar of discontent?
As you close your eyes in slumber, do you think that God would say
You have one more tomorrow for the work you did today?
May your life be filled with love, happiness and inspiration
