I have a friend who every time
I had a problem, dilemma or minor crisis would say - -
"Focus on the lesson.
Ask yourself what am I
being shown here"
Every person in this life
has something to teach me --
and as soon as I accept that,
I open myself to truly listening
For everyone that makes you cry,
there are three to make you smile,
And a smile will last a long, long time,
but a tear for just a little while.
Don't let someone who hates the world
cause you to hate it too,
Behind the clouds is a Golden sun,
and a sky that's full of Blue.
If someone said a thing that's cruel,
don't let it get to you.
Your achievements are greatly numbered,
and your faults are very few.
So if a certain person should act a certain way,
Think of those who Love You,
And don't let it spoil your day!
Reach high, for stars lie hidden in your soul.
Dream deep, for every dream precedes the goal.
