Just before I go to bed tonight, I slow
a bit, gather my thoughts to reflect
upon my day. Did I wear a smile in
an attempt to illuminate the day of
one who seemed depressed or
desolate. Did I say ‘Hello’ to one
I did not know? Every one of these
is a gesture of friendliness and caring
for our fellow man, yet, from day to
day, we wend our ways without care
or compassion ~ why? Did we not
see the pain he bore written there?
All this I see in my reflections of one
day gone by, and wonder, have I ever
left a man to suffer needlessly, because
I let blindness take me by the hand?
Dear Lord, please forgive me if I have.
Let me live out my life in totality, while
reflectively thinking of wrongs I may
have done to my fellow man along the way.
