Setting Sail
 
I am standing on the seashore:
a ship spreads her sails to the breeze
and starts for the ocean.
 
I stand watching watching her until
she fades on the horizon and someone
near me says "She is gone."
 
"Gone where" I asked.
"She is gone from my sight. The loss of
sight is in me, not her."
 
Just at the moment I say "She is gone" ,
there are others watching her coming,
whose voices take up the glad shout
"Here she comes!"
 
Such is the journey of life.
We set our sail and watch others set
set theirs. Sometimes we pass.
 
And when the day is over,
the only questions we will ask
are "Am I in the right port?" and
"Did I make a difference?"
 
Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow
 
Yesterday I met a stranger...
 
Today this stranger is my friend.
 
Had I not taken the time to say Hello,
or return a smile,
or shake a hand,
or listen,
I would not have known this person.
 
Yesterday would have turned into today
and our chance meeting would be gone.
 
Yesterday I hugged someone very dear to me.
 
Today they are gone...
 
and tomorrow will not bring them back.
 
Wouldn't it be nice if we all knew
tomorrow would be here?
 
But this is not to be,
so take the time TODAY
 
to give a hug,
a smile,
an "I LOVE YOU."
 

I Want To Know
 
I want to know, when day is done,
That life has been worth living,
That I have brought somebody joy
Through kind, unselfish giving.
 
I want to feel, when evening falls
and shadows quickly lengthen
That I have made somebody glad,
Some weakness I have strengthened.
 
I want to know that come what may
I've left some cheer and gladness;
I want to feel at close of day
I've banished someone's sadness.
 
I want to feel at close of day
That someone's cares were lighter
Because of kindness I have done,
May someone's life be brighter.
