Her Lesson

Give thanks to those
Who help you
When you are young
Because when you are old
And realise
How precious they were
They will be gone

So she told me
Time and again
Remembering her uncle
Taking in an orphan
The lady who raised her
Along with her daughters
Kindly shopkeepers
Giving her sweets

Yet somehow
I forgot to thank her
For helping me
With this lesson
When I was young
