Haiku Friday

once my customer
smile always at the ready
kindness unending

friendship as action
ultimate encouragement
unworthy but blessed

fulfillment restored
expression now invited
follow-thru as thanx

consistently possible
disconnect ended

so much yet to do
far more behind than I knew
slowly catching up

a far-reaching existence
extension of self

acting on my terms
pain dictating no more
interaction mine
