We take our lives for granted
We should be grateful for each day
For all life’s simple pleasures
For all the love that comes our way.

The clock is always ticking
Time is passing by
Be happy for each moment
No reason you should cry.

All the senseless arguments
Words spoken at times in vain
Don’t try to hurt each other
Try and take away the pain.

Appreciate your family
Learn to count your blessings
Life is full of messages
Intended to be lessons.

You have but only one life
One chance on the Merry Go Round
Savor all the good times
Don’t waste the love you’ve found.

Reach out and grab the brass ring
It’s there, there for the taking
Find your inspiration
Begin when you awaken.

A whole new day, a whole new world
An opportunity to begin again
Second chances are magical
A reason to smile, the new day begins.
