The Little Things



It's just a little thing
Missing the Assembly yesterday
What harm could it possibly bring?
I believed they had a quorum anyway
I didn't know till today
Someone else stayed away
It was just a little thing you see
They thought there was a quorum too.


It's just a little thing
The cheques were ready to be signed
I needed to find the time
To get a second signature
Not that hard of a thing to do
But now it's been a week or two
It's just a little thing to do
I even have it on my list too.


It was just a little thing
Lunch was hectic the day flew by
The phone never stopped
From crisis to crisis I hopped
Somewhere along the way
I missed my prayers today
It was just a little thing
What harm can it bring?


It was just a little thing
Not enough to make a scene
Nothing really much at all
But when the committee called
I just couldn't find the time
I'm sorry but would you mind?
Maybe another time
It was just a little thing
Nothing really much at all


It was not just a little thing
It was a huge event
Time to roll up the sleeves and get to work
The community really showed its worth
Commitments made and goals were set
We really were put to the test
Our expectations were surpassed
It was not just a little thing
It was big and then it passed


It was just a little thing
Thinking of the four year plan
Asking myself how I fared?
Would anyone even care?
Reflecting on its major goal
Entry By Troops so we're told
Looking at the three years past
It's just the little things
That haunts my soul on reflecting


It's just the little things
That can keep the plan unfulfilled
The big events these are fine
Even necessary at times
But it is the living between events
That really defines our existence
It is what will attract the hearts
It's just the little things
That will define my part


It's just the little things
That brings me guilt
That plays at the edges of my mind
That keeps the plan out of my grasp
That I can lay before Baha'u'llah
And pray with all my soul
He has not put me on His "to do" list
It's just little things
What harm can they bring?

O Son of Being
Busy not thyself with this world,
for with fire We test the gold,
and with gold We test Our servants.
