Did They Know – Sunday Poem

office building

He took God with him
To work today,
And no one else knew it, of course –
Or did they?

Could they sense it, I wonder,
In various ways
That made this day different
From other work days?

Could they tell it, perhaps,
In the warmth of his smile
That, somehow, made even
The dull tasks worthwhile?

Could they feel how the calm
From that great, hidden Source
Radiated its strength
Through the whole office force?

Did they know their small grievances
Melted away
All because he took God to work
With him today?
