There are many things we can do each day,
Besides our regular work;
But the little things that mean so much,
Are the ones, we often shirk.
Did you send a letter or card,
To a sick friend over the way;
To wish him a speedy recovery,
Or some cheery greeting say.
Did you lend a helping hand to day,
To a discouraged girl or boy?
A friendly smile or word of cheer,
Would have filled their hearts with joy.
And when you saw the blind and lame,
Trudging wearily down the road;
Did you call a halt in your daily rush,
To give them a lift with their load?
Ah! Yes my friend, it's a little thing,
A cup of cold water to give?
But when you begin doing kind deeds like these,
You'll find it's worthwhile to live.
