Does anyone remember that you spoke to him today?
Sunset over Gulf of Mexico, Naples, FL
The day is almost over, and its toiling time is through;
Is there anyone to utter now a kindly word of you?
Can you say tonight, in parting with the day that's slipping fast,
That you helped a single brother of the many that you passed?
Is a single heart rejoicing over what
you did or said;
Does the man whose hopes were fading,
now with courage look ahead?
A full moon shines on winters leafless branches
Did you waste the day, or lose it? Was
it well or sorely spent?
Did you leave a trail of kindness, or a
scar of discontent?
As you close your eyes in slumber, do
you think God will say,
"You have earned one more tomorrow
by the work you did today"?
