Little Things

It was a small thing

noting the name tag of the 


young man behind the counter

or was he a teen


Focused and serious

when he took our fast-food order

then served us 

He made sure all was in right order

Thank-you Ivan, I said

He smiled

It made all the difference 

to his serious demeanor

When we left, I went up to him

He was behind the cash register

Ivan, I said, Keep smiling

It makes you extra handsome

Thank you Ma’am, I appreciate that

It went from ear to ear

There was no mistaking that smile
