True Gentleman

You bend down to recover

the groceries of an elder

You hold open the door

for the women to pass

You linger to ensure

the young girl gets home

You smile even

when you feel sad

You go out of your way

for the children at school

You listen and tend

to the boy’s juvenile problems

You are kind to the elder

the youth and the kids

I heard an old lady say,

“I am indebted to you.”

And I thought,

“Why yes, everyone is.”

A timely reminder that we can do little but with huge effect
if we retain basic care and consideration for others. It
used to be called "good manners" back in the day - and,
unlike much that is witnessed today, gained a nod and a
smile of thanks as a reward. In short, human inter-action.
in action!
