A Day’s Dose

The really important things are often abstract – hope, comfort, joy,and love; friendships, – these are what create life. It is however quite easy for us to shift our focus from these to what are material, which are not in themselves bad, but are not the most important things. What we can feel is more important than what we can see.

This poem is to remind us of what really matters, what really heals. These are the balms for our souls.

These are the healthy doses

That God prescribes for all mankind

They are to be given before each day closes

If joy on earth we are to find

A well- meaning wink

When all her courage deep down sinks

And hopeless, staggers to tears’ brink

An acknowledging smile

When he tries to go the extra mile

And finish more than half of the work pile

A brotherly handshake

When he’s sacrificed all for your sake

And climbed mountains and crossed lakes

A sisterly hug

When seeking your welfare she has dug

And endured all your nag

An appreciating pat

When for you he put himself last

And shielded you from the destructive blast

An assuring hand squeeze

When she’s down and all day sneeze

And would like to let go if God should please

A cautioning nudge

When to warning he wont budge

And may end before a judge

A keep-going thumbs up

When she’s left with the last lap

But is drained of all her sap

A happy giggle

When your ribs and fancy he tickles

And his character is not fickle

These pills are for you to give

When you give them to others, you heal yourself

They are essential medicines for you to live

But kill quick, if within you remain on the shelf.

Cheers!
