Pass It On
Poet: Julie Hebert, 2011


To thank someone as kind as you,
Would take a lot of thought.
But thankfully I've come to find,
You're not in need of a lot.

You don't like presents or anything new,
You don't even need a card.
You prefer your appreciations to be something of helpfulness,
For someone else's regard.

Your belief is great that someone else should benefit,
From a deed well done.
With this I can see how great you have been,
To always be helping someone.

So here we are to give our thanks,
To someone we are grateful for.
May you receive everything you deserve,
We only hope you get much more.



Thank You
Poet: Catherine Pulsifer, 2011


You gave so willingly your time
And never once asked for a dime
So many appreciate all you do
We often wish you were two.

So today we say thank you
For all that you do
We would like to offer our thanks
On you we can always bank.



And More
Poet: Catherine Pulsifer 2011

A special person you are to us
You give and more
You help and more
You care and more
We would like to say thank you
We appreciate you MORE!

You Saved My Life
Poet: Julie Hebert, 2011


I first must say you'll never know,
How much you've saved my life.
You may feel less but really I'm blessed,
You helped removed so much of my strife.

I was not happy and felt lost at times,
You helped me settle down.
Just being there and listening with care,
Helped keep me from skipping town.

I know you feel you didn't do much,
But I'm here to tell you you free.
Without your love and regard for my life,
I don't know where I would be.

So please pay attention to what I am saying,
As this is so very grave.
I must thank you for seeing what I didn't know was there,
You have no idea what you have gave.
