Unexpected Is The Satisfaction That Comes - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

Savor a limelight achieved,
When and if these rays upon your deeds...
Should happen.

Nothing accomplished before the eyes of others,
Stay in their minds as a memory...
Longer than it does in yours.

Be grateful your activities have been acknowledged.
And when the spotlight begins to dim on your efforts,
Be the first to encourage others...
To do what it is that is loved.

Unexpected is the satisfaction that comes,
When others begin to show their appreciation...
For what your devotion, loyalty and efforts have done.
