A Day Worthwhile

 I count that day as wisely spent 
 In which I do some good. 
 For someone who is far away 
 Or shares my neighborhood.

 A day devoted to the deed 
 That lands a helping hand, 
 And demonstrates a willingness 
 To care and understand.

 I long to be of usefulness 
 In little ways and large, 
 Without a selfish motive 
 And without the slightest charge.

 Because in my philosophy 
 There is never any doubt 
 That all of us here on earth 
 Must help each other out.

 I feel that day is fruitful 
 And the time is worth the while, 
 When I promote the happiness 
 Of one enduring smile!
