Suff’ring people needing help, tend to only see themselves.
When, at last, they get relief, some will celebrate release.
Many then go on their way, glad to live another day.
Some will make a thank you call, others just forget it all.
Saying “thank you” as you leave is a trite formality.
Lick a stamp and send a card. Really, this is nothing hard.
Pen a sappy rhyming verse. You could do a whole lot worse.
As your problem sees an end, you could make a caring friend.
