Someone would notice

23 Mar


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.
