A job

That no one wants

Yet so many need

There is no job description

No training pool

No compensation

It requires




And most of all


The person you help

Is totally dependent

On you

The experience

Is humbling

To provide comfort

During someone’s

Darkest moments

And there is compensation

In the form of appreciation

The twinkle of an eye

A smile

A touch

Simple acts of kindness

That’s all it takes

To bring a sliver of comfort

And joy

To someone in need
