Influence - by Joseph Norris

I came across this poem on 'Influence' written by Joesph Norris the other day. It has fulfilled its mission and influenced me deeply. I hope all of you, my dear readers, feel some empathy with these words too.

Drop a pebble in the water,
and its ripples reach out far;
and the sunbeams dancing on them
may reflect them to a star.

Give a smile to someone passing,
thereby making his morning glad;
it may greet you in the evening
when your own heart may be sad.

Do a deed of simple kindness;
though its end you may not see,
it may reach, like widening ripples
down a long eternity.
