Just Smile…A Poem by Kate Hanford
These days people are always rushing around with heads down emersed in mobile phones. It seems like simple acts of kindness and good manners have been long forgotten. I wish people would take time to absorb what is going on around them. Then, they might notice the old lady who needs a seat on the train or the girl sitting alone in the park. A simple act of kindness is all that is needed to change someone’s day. Even just a smile can make a huge difference.
This poem is written about good manners and thoughtfulness to others.
I hope you like it :
I find it hard to construe,
What it takes to say “Thank You”
It really doesn’t take that much
To pass along a grateful touch
and could “Please” be uttered a little more?
A chair pulled out? An opened door?
“Good Morning” always is a treat
On a crowded train when eyes do meet
Who knows, you might just make a friend
When you smile and a hand extend
And in days when people have no time
A simple kindness is sublime
and spreads a smile, which is returned
Welcomed in and respect earned.
Then that person spreads the word
Manners kept and kindness heard
So remember it is worth your while
To say “Thank You” and Just Smile
