Give Thanks

When you look around and all is fair and bright
And cheek to cheek your face lets out a dazzling smile
When your ears flap to the jingle of the early birds sound
In all your endeavors of the day be not you proud
Spare a moment and be sure to give thanks!

When the sun spreads it splendor on your feet
And the clouds embrace you with its tender winds
When the rains wash you up in its purest form
In all your moans and whines, if only you would pause
Spare a moment and be sure to give thanks!

When the day gets overburdened with let-downs
And your face is squashed with stacks of frown
When friends fail as most often they would
In all your frustrations, would you remember to?
– Spare a moment and be sure to give thanks!

When all your efforts seem to weigh no measure
And your good name finds its way down the mud
When your niceness is repaid with hostility
As you maintain your pride and dignity
Spare a moment and be sure to give thanks!

For we all are passengers on this journey
So why choose to be sad and weary?
Accept the good that comes and the bad in good fate
Times shall pass but never will a good name
But you will account for times you failed to give thanks!
