Whose Life Was Touched Today
Author: Terrie*


did you ever stop to wonder?
as I often do
how many lifes did I touch today?
no matter how much I brainstorm I can not remember..
did I embrace a soul? maybe?
was it thru something I said, ?
hmmm this I do not know
did they feel the presence of my love? maybe?
maybe, maybe so

maybe it was some thing I had done?
don't know what to tell ya I really do not know
dried a tear today? oh lord I do not know
dried a tear? hmm let me think.. maybe?
perhaps it was just being there as a friend
the support I offered at the end... maybe?
that may have been,oh I do not know

well no matter what it was
it made me feel three times my size
because i made a difference in someones life
it placed me at a very special spot
up in the mountains ,so high gazing at the bright stars late at night?
or staring out my back window watching the birds glide in motion
and the clouds in the distance trying to steal the show
it even drew me back to the time when my child shared a tender hug?
all the joy that my heart felt
just thinking about the person whom I may have touched today
I start to wonder about life under the sea
and the beauty of the calm waters...when it is not in a rush
oh I remember
it was were the one whose life I felt
I was the one whose life you touched today
it was you...
you did it for me...
the feelings I had were yours
not mine
you felt good for making a difference
it was my life you touched.....

I like this poem because of it;s positive message and subject. It addresses not only that we can touch people without saving the world, but also that it can touch us to touch other people! Very well written Terrie :O)
