Do Not Shadow the Good Stuff
Looking back at yesterday
do not shadow the good stuff!
sometimes the pain and hurt stay
and the flower you picked is thrown away
Was Monday so bad?
Did you see the smile she gave you?
sometimes the pain and hurt hide
what good we feel deep inside
Did Tuesday provide something swell?
Or did you only see the decay inside?
sometimes it is hard to see
the good in things like friends like me!
Did Wednesday show any sunshine?
was there someone to hold you?
sometimes a stanger can be the light
that makes your week turn out bright!
By Thursday was there a glimmer of hope?
The kind old man that listend so well?
sometimes it takes the bad to see all the good
and finally to know that someone understood!
On Friday was it just the end of the work week?
Or did someone remind you of some wonderful thought?
sometimes a kind word is all you need
to clean up your garden of one bad weed!
Its Saturday and rest is swell
a smile works wonders while with a friend
sometimes happiness shows up like a gift
and behold a wonderful new life shift!
Sunday I hope the week brought some life
surrounding you with sunshine and joy
sometimes you need to breathe deep and see
all the wonderful things life brings to thee.
Each day, week, and year brings so many feelings
choose a beautiful song for the scrapbook in your mind
sometimes we need to sence some pleasure
wonderful memories can turn into treasure.

Standing together is so much better than hiding in the dark.
