Is anybody happier because you passed this way?
Does anyone remember that you spoke to them today?
The day is almost over and its toiling time is through:
Is there anyone to utter now a kindly word of you?
Can you say tonight in parting
With the day that's slipping fast
That you helped a single person
Of the many that you passed?
Is a single heart rejoining over what you did or said?
Does the one whose hopes were fading
Now with courage look ahead?
Did you waste the day or use it?
Was it well or sorely spent?
Did you leave a trail of kindness
Or a scar of discontent?
As you close your eyes in slumber,
Do you think that God will say:
"You have earned one more tomorrow
By what you did today."
