    When you're heartsick, discouraged and tired.
    And nothing seem's right anywhere:
    When you're all out of tune with the world.
    Does it help you to know that I care?

    When you sympathy need, and your load
    Seems almost to heavy to bear,
    Although I speak never a word.
    Does it help you to know that I care?

    When the world is all sunny and bright,
    And the pleasures of others you share.
    Does it add to your joy just a bit-
    And help you , to know that I care?

    So, Friend, as the years pass us by,
    Be they dark ones, or sunny and fair.
    Rest assured that it helps me to know,
    That it helps you, to know that I care.

    This little book was in a box of stuff I got from an estate auction several years ago. The poems in it was by Jennie M. Tabb. this was published in 1927 The Stratford Company, Boston Massachuetts. I hope everyone enjoy's it.Because I do care.

    Seems especially apt coming just before the stock market crash and Great Depression.

    Reminds me of the great folk song, "Keep on the Sunny Side."
