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 hands 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 give a smile
Courtesy is a wonderful thing–and it costs us nothing. In fact, it’s as good for the giver as it is for the recipient. 🙂
