Volunteer Appreciation Poem

13 Years, 4 Months ago

Page: 12


 
Does anyone have a poem - or a link to poems - for volunteer appreciation? We're giving some departing volunteers a little brass clock to thank them for their "time" they've given to the children and I'd like a poem to go along with it. Thanks!

Volunteers
Many will be shocked to find,
When the day of judgement nears,
That there's a special place in Heaven,
Set aside for volunteers.
Furnished with big recliners,
Satin couches and footstools,
Where there are no committee chairmen,
No yard sales or rest area coffee to serve.
No library duty or bulletin assembly,
There will be nothing to print or staple,
Not one thing to fold or mail.
Telephone lists will be outlawed,
But a finger snap will bring,
Cool drinks and gourmet dinners
And rare treats fit for a king.
You ask, "Who'll serve these priveleged few
And work for all they're worth?"
Why all those who reaped the benefits,
And not once volunteered on Earth.

V is for the vigor that you bring
O is for the opportunity to know you
L is for your life you share
U is for the unconditional love you have
N is for the nurturing you give
T is for the time you don't have
E is for the excitement you bring
E is for the energy you have
R is for the reason you're a volunteer

Remember, this is not ANOTHER WORLD. You may be THE BOLD AND THE
BEAUTIFUL, but AS THE WORLD TURNS in the DAYS OF OUR LIVES, you must
be the GUIDING LIGHT, for ALL OUR CHILDREN in as much as they have
but ONE LIFE TO LIVE, for you truly work with THE YOUNG AND THE
RESTLESS!!

YOU MAKE A DIFFERENCE

There are many who go the "second mile"
And greet each day's tasks with a smile;
Who spend their lives serving others
And look upon all men as brothers.

Who work for all children everywhere,
When there's a need - they are there.
Their time and talents freely dedicate
Serving in places small and great.

These are the ones we honor today
And to you we wish to say -
This world is now a better place
Because it looked upon you face.

dedicated service
