Once upon a time it meant something

For a man to hold a door for a lady
Not because he was paid but because he wanted to

For someone to give up their seat for another
It cost nothing and gave respite for one who needed it

To smile and greet another on the street
A brief bit of happy to be shared with a stranger

Once upon a time we were less progressed
and yet perhaps we were more civilized

Authors Notes
This morning I was wandering around the corners of my mind and
remembered things that used to be much more common than they are now.
