Gratitude short poem

Photo by stevendepolo

Has anyone told you?
You make them smile?
A little jesting
And a crappy day becomes worthwhile…

Has anyone told you?
Your hugs are like glue
They stick back the pieces
Broken into two…

Have you ever been told?
The kindness in your heart
Has lent someone some joy
When they were falling apart

The hand you extended
Towards the fallen one
And the morsel of sweet to
A homeless person was thanked

The heart that was broken
You eased the throbbing with a smile
She forgot about the pain
Atleast for a little while

Has anyone told you?
You brighten their day?
You light up the dark
Small gestures go a long way

If no one yet has told you
Let me do the honours
Thank you for existing
For smoothening out the corners

Thank you for a sharing
Your beautiful heart
In a world full of hatred
That drives us apart

All of you who care
Who bring warmth in the cold
Thank you for existing
You brighten the world

So much truth said so well. A smile can change everything and everyone. We not only need to receive a smile but to give them. You put the meaning of caring into this so well.

I owe you nothing……so do not expect from me anything as gratitude..…….
……………..even if I owe you something good hearts like you do not do good things expecting gratitude……..
…………that is why I leave you without any gratitude……but only with appreciation .

Debts Of Gratitude short poem

Wanted to pay, Debts of gratitude. There was a call from evergreens, He was not ready to go. Standing in pit of snakes, He was preparing himself for a random fang. Throat like a blue-bird, Waiting for a song. The
