I Love My Job! Poem by Dee Daffodil

I Love My Job!

Rating: 4.9

You may think from the title
That this is a sarcastic poem
But really, I do love my job! !

It teaches me reality
It teaches me of life
It shows me both
The good and bad
Of human nature

I love my job!
I love the fact that each day...
Is someone new to help
Someone new to save perhaps
Or sometimes I'm too late...
And that too is life!

I meet many many people
Throughout my daily tasks
Some like me, some respect me
Some just wish I'd burn in hell!
Most...tolerate me
And realize that I am there for a reason...
It's my job!

I love my job!
It teaches me to count my daily blessings!
To be thankful for what I have
Because so many have so little

I love my job!
It teaches me to value every minute
To seize the day and save the day
And find that life within it!

I love my job!
It teaches me a love of other people...
To look beyond myself
And walk in other's shoes

Have I mentioned yet...
How much I love my job? ? ! !
Because if I haven't...I really should...
Because I do! !

This poem reminds me of some of my own. The titles are 'Don't Cry My Child, ' 'Mammy, Pappy, ' and 'Learn, My Dear Friends.' In all cases, this poem is a good one to read. GREAT JOB! ! !

How lovely! What a wonderful subject - and how nice to have someone who sounds 100 per cent happy with their day! Congratulations on your poem too.

'Have I mentioned yet... What my job is! ! Because if I haven't...I really should..' Yes, I want to know! your poem has me guessing from start to finish nurse? doctor? social worker? nun?

All of the above and it makes me very aware of my own mortality. The only piece I ever wrote about work is 'Weekend Warriors'. Ez X

We should all be so lucky...I'd like a job on PH blocking spam and popups...I think I would enjoy that...for about an hour.

Dear Dee, You are most fortunate, we should all love our jobs, then we can let our love flow to all we meet everyday. I am struggling with that right now (loving my job) but your Poem is such a good reminder of how it should (even must) be. Thank you. Love from David
