My Reason for Living

Is anybody happier

Because you passed this way?

does anyone remember

That you spoke to them today?

The day is almost over,

And it’s 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?

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 that God will say

“You have earned one more tomorrow

By the work you did today”?
