Taking The Time To Care! - Poem by Eric Cockrell

that old man
that i spent an hour with
the other day...

just talking, and listening
to his problems...
came back and thanked me,

a second time, for just
taking the time to care...
sometimes the best prayer

we can ever pray
is just that... taking the time
to care!
