Footsteps To Live By
There are those times that come along,
When things just don't go right,
When fairness seems to slip away,
And wrong things fill our sight.
Sometimes it's hard for us to see,
Beyond the hurt we feel.
It's hard to see the blessings too,
And know that they are real.
Because the heavy loads you have
Weigh more at times like these,
I ask if I may carry too,
And offer with a "Please"
I want to make a difference though,
To bring a smile this day,
And maybe if by writing this,
A smile will come your way.
So hold your chin up strong and proud,
Cause it's the thing to do,
And know that I'll be standing near,
