A poem.

Author unknown.

She smiled at a sad looking stranger.

The smile seemed to help him feel better.

He remembered past kindness' of a friend

And he wrote him a thank you letter.

The friend was so pleased with the thank you

That he left a large tip after lunch.

The waitress, thrilled by the size of the tip,

Put the whole thing on a hunch.

The next day she picked up her winnings,

And gave a part to a man on the street.

The man on the street was so grateful;

For two days he'd had nothing to eat.

After he finished his dinner,

He left for his small dingy room.

He didn't know at that moment

That he might be facing his doom.

On the way, he picked up a small puppy

And took him to his room to get warm.

The puppy was exceedingly grateful

To be in out of the blustery storm.

That night when the house caught on fire,

The puppy, he barked the alarm.

He barked 'till he woke the whole household

And saved everybody from harm.

One of the boys that he rescued

Grew up and became a famous man.

It just goes to show what we can do

If we but follow God's simple plan,

and Smile.
