When I Think Of You - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

When I think of you,
And all that you are going through.
Little time do I give...
Feeding the whims,
Of my own selfish wishes.

When I think of you,
And the time you have spent...
Giving to others,
With such a 'relentlessment'.
Not a thought do I have,
Whether or not I should be there.
It is just done.
And I do it!
When I think of you in my sentiments.

When I think of you,
And all that you are going through.
Somehow I feel,
What I do is just not enough!
And for me,
I am glad that is realized.
There is more I can offer.
With a need I see,
To reach out and touch.
