    Helping Those In Need

    in Current Events Poems

    What does it take to be a volunteer?
    Must you travel afar, or is there someplace near
    Where there is a need that is evident--
    Where someone would think you were heaven sent

    Sharing A Smile And Being Cheerful

    in Compassion Poems

    I was given a smile the other day
    From someone who passed me on their way.
    I wasn't sure what I should do.
    Perhaps, I'll leave it up to you.

    Making The Most Out Of What Time Is Left

    in Aging Poems

    I realize I've reached the time
    When it's very plain to see

I was very touched by this poem because it reflects how I feel. I'm 97 and have witnessed so much. I believe we can brighten the day, no matter what the circumstances are. My greatest treasure is the file of letters I have received from all over the world (thanks to Family Friends Poems) that let me know that people have been amused, comforted, or inspired by what I wrote.
