VETERANS HOSPITAL 2008 Pictures, Images and Photos
                      Why is my life so easy to bear?
                      At my age I should be perched in a rocking chair
                      Or lying in a cozy bed at a nursing home
                      Never thinking about where next I must roam.

                      Instead you'll find me at the gym
                      Not dunking in the pool like the other old folks
                      But lifting weights, kick-boxing
                      And laughing at jokes.

                      Why do others my age grumble and complain
                      About every little, or big, ache or pain?
                      If I acted that way
                      I could become insane.

                      Here's the solution
                      When I practice this, I find
                      I can be blessed
                      With permanent peace of mind:

                      Find some people who are worried or ill
                      And then present them with your magic pill
                      Your magic pill?
                      What can that be?
                        I promise
                      It will work for you
                      'cause it's always worked for me.

                      How do you find this pill
                      So you can play your part?
                      You find it by searching
                      Deep in your heart.

                      The contents are quite simple
                      What does this pill contain?
                      A few ingredients
                      To remove their pain.

                      Give them a big smile
                      And the touch of your hand
                      Tell a little joke
                      That would be grand !!! (:+)

                      The bonus?
                      You'll receive blessings
                      That never will end
                      Because you've learned what it is
                      To be a good friend.
                              The magic word is
