Thank You

28 Jul


We all know to say thank you

But we don’t just feel to say thank you.

I told someone, take care and have a great weekend.

He responded with a warm handshake and radiant, courtesy smile.

Really, I told myself, thank you can open doors

An hour later, as I was about to enter a building, the door suddenly opened

A granny in her 80s just went in before me after shopping at a grocery

Struggling with her mobile scooter and shopping bags, I asked,

“Are you OK?”

“I’m all right,” she answered passively trying to tuck the scooter

Then, I asked if she needed help going upstairs

She instead handed me the bags trying to describe her flat number

I could barely hear her description from her trembling voice

But she diligently spelt her name on the door

DOW, she shouted out.

As if the DOW, stands for Don’t Only Wait, so, take the initiative

Half way up, she shouted again.

Thank you!


So, it is that easy to say thank you, I murmured.

Thank you is a simple phrase with loaded meanings

Thank you, when it comes from the heart, can bear fruits

It can fill and yield broken hearts

It can move mountains

It can make a difference

Thanks you, for reading this piece
