I fell down the other day

And a stranger came over

To ask if I was ok

 

He took my arm to help me rise

And as I slowly rose from the ground

He met me with a big surprise

 

It was a smile upon his face

With a kind word to be careful

And to maybe slow my pace

 

I righted myself and shook his hand

“Only my pride is hurt I said”

As I brushed away dirt and sand

 

I fell down the other day

And my faith was restored

In a very special way

 

With so much social pressure and strife

Another human being helped me

And took time from their life

 

I fell down the other day

His name was James

A debt to him I will never repay

So if you see someone fall down today

Don’t walk past, stop and help

Because a smile can make pain melt away.

 

I fell down the other day

I was full of hate and pain so you see

He saved my life in an unselfish way
