I Want To Know: A Poem

I Want To Know

I want to know, when day is done,

That life has been worth living,

That I have brought somebody joy

Through kind, unselfish giving.

I want to feel, when evening falls

and shadows quickly lengthen
That I have made somebody glad,

Some weakness I have strengthened.

I want to know that come what may

I’ve left some cheer and gladness;
I want to feel at close of day
I’ve banished someone’s sadness.

I want to feel at close of day
That someone’s cares were lighter

Because of kindness I have done,

May someone’s life be brighter.
