He did a favor

Twas a small one

Details matter not

Twas a selfless act

And meant a lot

To a little boy

Who could not tell

Why a stranger

Would stop to help

So time passed.....

The boy grew up

Became a man

And by-the-by

He passed a child

He did not know

Who needed help

So you might ask

What did he do?

I did a favor

Author's Notes/Comments: 

Do a favor. Pass it on.

By writing this, you have done us ALL a favor... to appreciate the gift of even the smallest gestures. Awesome

Someone went to my poetry site today and left a lot of comments on many of the poems and other things I had written... and didn't leave a name. I told this to someone and they suggested that I pass on the favour... and, what's the first poem I stumble upon? Yours, which talks about this very same thing. So, here you go... I love the title of this one, it fits so perfectly too...
