The significance doesn't lie in the possibility

I am the only compassionate person

in someone's life,

but in the possibility

I am the first.

      Your poem leaves me thinking - Having a compassionate person in one's life IS the significance of it all.

      In a hurting world your sentiment is true more often than we might believe. Thank you for sharing, thank you for encouraging others to consider the thought.

      ahorseback and fpherj48: I'm not very prolific. If you don't believe me, read my books. I think it comes from newspaper reporting. If I can say it in a sentence I won't make a paragraph out of it. Thanks for the encouragement!
