This Life


 

This Life

By

Jerry Wayne Humphrey

 

 

 

The night was so long I thought the day would never arrive

 

Now it is here and the sun is out it’s a great day to be alive

 

We never know when it will be our turn to leave

 

Lets not waste it and sit and grieve

 

Each day that we are here is indeed a gift

 

Being thankful for what you have should give your spirit a lift

 

You must try to think of the good you have in life

 

We need to try to forget the troubles toils and strife

 

If we look at the good in what we find

 

The bad won't so trouble our mind

 

Whatever you dwell on you unknowingly attract

 

So think of what you have and not what you lack

 

Don't think of what doesn't sound so clear

 

Be grateful for the wonderful things you can hear

 

Don’t be sad at what your eyes can't perceive

 

Be glad for the beauty of what they can still receive

 

Your life is filled with many wonders put there just for you

 

                                         Whether it is good or bad depends on what you see and do
