Did I Take Time?

How grateful have I been today?
Did I take time to pause and pray?
What kindness did I do or say
To help someone along the way?

Did I take time to call or send
A cheerful message to a friend?
Did I, perhaps, begin a trend
To be sincere, and not pretend?

Did I cause other hearts to sing,
Or did my comments leave a sting?
I hope today I did some thing
Unselfish and encouraging.
