And showed you my biggest grin,
Would you grin back?
Or would you get angry?
Or maybe, just maybe, you’d burst out laughing!
If I knocked on your door at dawn on Sunday
And I held out a big package wrapped in bright paper with a bow and card saying, “Just to Let You Know I Care,”
Would you politely ask whom the package was for?
Or would you refuse to take it and send me away?
Or maybe, just maybe, you’d accept the gift with a warm smile and thank me whole-heartedly!
If I was sitting in your car
When you went to get in,
Would you uneasily ask me what I was doing?
Or would you slam the door, holler at me, and never leave your car unlocked again?
Or maybe, just maybe, you’d ask me where I needed a ride to!
If I was sitting at your kitchen table when you came home
And there was a wonderful meal, ready and waiting for you,
Would you stand in shock?
Or would you call the police?
Or maybe, just maybe, you’d greet me and thank me by inviting me to stay!
Your answers to my questions might have been negative so far
And that’s because you don’t know me,
But I still have a couple of questions left.
What would happen if you did one of these things for a friend?
