Is anybody happier because you passed his way?
Does anyone remember that you spoke to him today?
This day is almost over, and its toiling time is through;
Is there anyone to utter now, a friendly word for you?
Can you say tonight in passing,
that you helped a single person,
of the many that you passed?
Is a single heart rejoicing over what you did or said?
Does one whose hopes were fading now with courage look ahead?
Think not on yesterday, nor trouble borrow
On what may be in store for you tomorrow;
But let today be your incessant care --
the past is past, tomorrow's in the air.
Who gives today the best that in him lies
will find the road that leads to clearer skies.

It only takes one smile to offer welcome...
and blessed be the person who will share it.
It only takes one moment to be helpful...
and blessed be the person who will spare it.
It only takes one joy to lift a spirit...
and blessed be the person who will give it.
It only takes one life to make a difference
and blessed be the person who will live it.
I know I ask perfection of a quite imperfect world...
and fool enough to think that's what I'll find.
