A Few Small Things - Poem by Joseph T. Renaldi

I placed a coin into the hand
Of a blind man who appreciated it much,
It was just a small token - but oh, the joy
That lay in its metallic touch.

I spoke a few kind words,
The words were merely a small thing,
And yet, they roused a weary heart
To hope for the reward life will bring.

I escorted an old lady across the busy street,
A small, but thoughtful thing to do.
Remembering her smile and thankful words
Ignited happiness in me the whole day through.

    these are few small things
    but there's a whole lot more
    thank you for this little reminder -
    it's another one small thing after all.

    good thoughts!
