This is a lovely personal encouragement reminding us that we are all significant and have a special role to play, regardless of how small it might seem to us. This is another favourite poem in our church ministry within care homes.
This is how the poem begins:
What is a poem if no-body reads it?
What is a favour if no-body needs it?
It continues in this way until…..
So many good things in life all rely
On something or other to help them get by.
So many moments in life since your birth
Relied upon you for purpose and worth.
So many people exist with no clue
Of how very special they are; is that you?
and continues until ……..
You could be the echo of HIP, HIP HOORAY
The person who turns someone’s night-time to day.
The light on the diamond, the shine as it glistens
My words will have purpose, if somebody listens!
