Oh Michael...this touched me so much...
I thought about my grandfather, he was the best person in the world...always tried to help people anyway he could, everybody loved him so much... He was 87 and was also walking with a cane. But thank God he was never alone.
I always feel so deeply sorry for lonely people, there must be nothing worse than living and dying alone...
You're right about how some people really leave a great impact on our lives.

Michael, what a wonderfull story. I find it a true inspiration and hope that many of us will strive to give the same type of anonymous service to others.

EagleOne,
Thank you.  I'm glad know know this one touched you.

Beth,
Walking Stick is everwhere we look.  We often fail to notice him because he would rather show his kindness without others knowing of it.  Thank you for reading this.

LM,
It was nice to hear about your grandfather.  I don't remember either of mine.  Thanks for the nice words and stopping by.

Eddie de Jong,
I'm happy to know this inspired you.  Thanks for visiting.

Liz,
My sincere thank you for such sweet words, my friend.  It really touched me.  I appreciate you dropping in on me and taking the time to read my poem.

~Michael~

Michael, I did a search on your work so I could reread some. I'm glad I did or I would have missed this beautiful poem.
Love,
Dee

This was a most wonderful and heartfelt piece about a special old man!!  Our lives wouldn't be the same if it was not for special souls such as him to touch our lives.  This was great...thank you for sharing!!  

Take Care,
Bridgette
