Sometime …Somewhere

You gave on the way a pleasant smile,
and thought no more about it.
It cheered a life that had been dark the while,
which might have been wrecked without it.
And so for that smile that was given there,
you’ll have a reward sometime …somewhere.

You spoke one day a cheering word,
and passed to other duties.
It cheered a heart; new promise stirred,
and painted a life with beauties.
And so for that word of golden cheer,
you’ll have a reward sometime …somewhere.

You lent a hand to a fallen one,
a lift in love was given.
You saved a soul when hope was gone,
and helped him on toward heaven.
And so for that help you proffered there,
you’ll have a reward sometime …somewhere.

My prayer today is that I will at ‘sometime’ arrive at ‘somewhere’ and that it will be really, really crowded, and that I will see you there as well!

  1. Oh my, I’ve been lucky, so often the reward I got for the smile, the hand, the glance was getting the same at the times I needed it. sometimes just watching it happen with others and sometimes in poems like yours. You know what? I see you there as well =) Namaste
