Wondered if I mattered?
Then I saw the love in their eyes
Questioned if I made a difference?
Then a small hand reached for mine
Worried I wasn’t reaching anyone
Then i saw them strive to improve
Thought my work didn’t matter
Till I heard “thank you”
When the sky seemed dark
A small soul gave me a hug
When I needed to embrace simple joy
A child’s laugh resinated in my heart
