Poem - So Small

There are a handful of people who intervened in my life at critical times. The strange thing is that they aren't aware of what they did. Once could say that it was about their being in the right place at the right time, but looking back I can see that there is something incredibly special about all these people, and this is what allowed them to manifest their actions.

So Small
Poem for Day 067 – 20150308

To those people who
took the time
and picked me up
when I was down.

What you did
was not special
it was instead
what I needed.

I didn't tell you,
it looked normal.
but down inside
I was saved.

I was eased from
the other side.
I was kept here
where I need to be.

So thank you dear one
for what you've done.
An act so small
was the world to me.
