Help Never Forgotten.

We go through our lives,

We have good times,

We have bad.

Sometimes we need help

And as we look around

People just look away,

Not caring at the misfortune,

The misfortune of others.

But then it happens,

A person comes to you.

They may be known,

Or even unknown,

But they have kindness,

Kindness in their heart.

So in this life be sure,

Be sure to never forget,

Never forget those,

Those who helped you out,

While everyone else just looked away.


  • Poetic Dan

    Even with just words of support, you never forget the ones that lifted you from the floor or just listened when you cried some more!

    Great stuff!

    • Goldfinch60

      Thank you Dan. Yes it is very true, you never forget those who helped you.

      A good write Gold. If asking for help ourselves, sometimes we (or I) might feel bad if we 'only' contact people when we have a need. Not that we 'use' others and only come cap-in-hand to them.

      • Goldfinch60

        Thanks Orchi, all it needs is a kind word sometimnes.

        • Andrew Charles Forrest

          There are angels among us
          Well captured Andy

          • Goldfinch60

            There surely are Andrew, there surely are.

          • Clara

            Lovely. Sad that most will look away. But there's such treasure when someone doesn't.

            • Goldfinch60

              Thank you Clara, it is those little things in life showing that some care that are so meaningful.
