At this time of year when we are all in a rush;
doing all of the things that we think we must.
Maybe it's time to slow down and take stock;
of all of the wonderful things that we've got.
Not speaking of things that we can buy or can sell;
but instead of the things that make up our shell.
Those things that no amount of money can buy;
wouldn't want to live without them, won't even try.
The friend that is there by night and by day;
they show you they care in their own special way.
Maybe it's time that you reach out to them;
and tell them what a true blessing they've been.
There are people around you that are hurting inside;
they are doing what they can simply just to get by.
Try giving a kind word and one of those smiles that you've got;
you never can tell, it might really help them a lot.
Just open your eyes and see with your heart;
it's not always easy, but a good way to start.
Your life will be richer and you will feel better I bet;
nothing can compare to the feeling you will get.
Our lives are not perfect but that doesn't matter;
even on days that our peace is in shatters.
What matters the most is what's there deep inside;
you just have to share it, don't let it hide.
