A good deed,
Will come in any size,
Any Form.

All someone needs to do,
Is accept it graciously,
When it knocks,
On your door.

All someone needs to do,
Is say yes at any chance.

The reward:
Is no reward at all,
At least none physically.
For the joy,
Of just doing a good deed,
Making the day brighter,
For another,
Should be the best reward.

Hearing the word, “ Thankyou”,
As they leave,
With a smile on their face.
Will make,
Anyone’s heart just soar.

I wrote this poem after a miniture dog followed me home after walking my dog. I put up a few "Found Dog" signs, and today the owner came and got it.
