My Calling

ink sketch


See the smile upon my face

I put it there for you

Now perhaps you’ll understand

The things that I must do


A cloudy day is all around

You fear the sun is gone

But here it is upon my face

Which from my heart it’s drawn


We have the power to pass it on

To change the way it’s done

Perhaps it’s just a smile you need

To feel as if you’ve won


But sometimes more is needed here

To change the way you feel

I will do all that I can

To help you start to heal


The reason I am in this place

I believe it is my calling

To help another when in need

To keep someone from falling


In doing so I live my life

The best that I can be

I join with others all around

To help the world to see

    Smiles and other simple kind gestures can make all the difference in someone’s day. I love the drawing. Our pup can be very frustrating, at times, but she can also brighten our day with a smile and an unexpected kiss.

    What a lovely poem Pam. And your ink sketch is incredible. You have been gifted with many talents. How lucky are we that you share them with us?!

    Our Murphy can change my whole mood with a tail wag, or a butt wag, or a wet kiss. She has listened to my most personal thoughts and never repeated them to a soul! She doesn’t get ornery when I am. She just loves me….and I her.
