I wrote this poem awhile ago as a thank you to someone. Sometimes a simple acknowledgement can lift a spirit, and let the person know that who they are and what they do matters.
It is said that one life ,
can touch and affect so many others ,
like a stone tossed in still waters.
a ripple that spreads,
and continues on,
touching distant shores,
of time and place.
You do not often hear words of thanks,
of your gifts of time and self,
and you do not even realize,
the people you have touched,
with your acts of kindness and caring.
I thank you for the ripples you have started,
in my small world.
