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.

.
