I met you as a youngster,
introduced by my mother.
Integrated into my life,
you organized like no other.
You guided me as I packed for camp,
supporting me as I roamed.
And when preparing to return,
made sure my belongings came back home.
When teachers assigned schoolwork,
you recorded tasks and dates.
Providing a visual reminder,
assignments were never late.
As the years passed and I grew up,
you remained part of my day.
Shopping, holidays, weekend chores,
you continually kept chaos at bay.
I love the way you collect my thoughts,
draining stress from my mind.
But my favorite part is earning the right
to check the box on each line.
With you by my side,
I am my best me.
Others can’t help but notice,
my organization and productivity.
