Is anybody happier because you passed by their way

Does anybody remember that you spoke to them today

Were you selfish (pure and simple) as you rushed along your way

Or is someone mighty grateful for a deed you did today

Can you say tonight in parting with the day that’s slipping fast

That you helped a single person in the many that you passed

Is a single heart rejoicing over what you did or said

Does a man whose hopes were fading now with courage look ahead

Did you waste the day or lose it

Was it well or poorly spent

 Did you leave a trail of kindness or a scar of discontent

As you close your eyes in Slumber do you think the Universe would say

You have earned one more tomorrow by the work you did today
