Life is never easy,
Sometimes it is so hard,
But everything that you get through,
Makes you the person that you are.
They say what doesn't break you makes you stronger,
Every obstacle you overcome,
Makes you grateful for the good things,
Sets you up for more to come.
Don't cry for what you're without,
Rejoice in what you've got,
Take each day as it comes,
Don't let good times be forgot.
Tell people that you love them,
Don't waste your time with hate,
'Coz all too soon life is over,
And apologies are left too late.
Give good thoughts and love to everyone,
Share a smile with all you meet,
Let them take the time to get to know you,
Don't judge someone you see in the street.
Life is too short to waste,
Everybody has a time to go,
We are one big family,
All reunited when we go 'home.'
