“Erasing the Gum”

Nobody’s saying Good Morning today

No one is sharing a smile

Walking this trail is like walking alone Feels like the loneliest mile


What can I do to help spirits come out

What kind of friend can I be

Down in the doldrums their faces all say Unhappy faces I see


Cheery "Hello" with a bright open face

That’s what I’ll cast down the line

Try on this walker and bicyclist too

Help lift them out of their bind


Seems like a pall still remains on the day Challenging me to arise Turn up the wattage and focus my beam For most it will be a surprise



What will you do today to lift the spirits of those around you? How will you feel when you do so?
