I walked and worked all day
I worked and walked all week
Then someone, not anyone, told me:
Thank you very much!
It’s been ages since I had such a service.
Wait a minute, I told myself,
Is she talking to me?
Surely, she’s speaking to me.
Then she said again, more genteelly:
Thank you so much….
Thanking you so much….
The gentle words kept recurring to me
Hurray! Someone, just not anyone
Could recognise my effort, efficacy
Hmm, this is a pat on my back –
A pack to back my memoirs
I beamed back to her,
And my heart blazed, pumped with joy.
I wept tears of joy,
She meant all her words,
She was in her eighties.
I walked away smiling and overjoyed
What a way to wrap up a week.
