You Make A Difference

Do you sometimes wonder
about the meaning of life,
about the meaning of your life?

Do you sometimes wonder
if you add any value to this world,
if you are important to the people you know?

You may never know
how much you mean to others,
people don’t talk about it often.

Somehow we forget
that others need to know
they are important to us, too.

Like a pebble on the surface of the water,
we create ripples in the world around us,
and they move out into the world changing what they touch.

We will never know
all the ways we touch those around us,
all the ways others are changed because of us.

You do not need to wonder
if you make a difference,
if your life has meaning.

You do.
It does.
