Ere I Pass This Day

I know that ere I pass this day

Some part of me will sternly say,

“what have you done since day begun,

did you forget to help someone-

someone who needs a part of you,

that part of you that’s always true?”


Then I say to that part in me,

that part that always true shall be,

“I gave what I thought best today

to help a stranger on his way.”

And then ere day is done, I know,

some part is counting on me so.
