Crystal Ball


I hold a tiny crystal ball.....
So softly in my hands
I gaze into it carefully
And I try to understand

For this crystal is divided
There are two sides there to see
One that shines of happiness
The other the darkest life can be

What a precious little jem
That holds a message now so clear
For life is how you look at it
So choose carefully my dear

For if you look into the darkness....
You will miss so many things
Never seeing love or laughter
Or the joy the two can bring

So I'll remember now this lesson
This tiny ball has shown this day
I'll never let a moment go forsaken
And I'll never let another smile just fade away
