I Love This

if with pleasure you are viewing
any work that someone's doing,
if you like them or you love them,
tell them now.

don't withhold your approbation
till the clery make oration,
and they lie with snowy lilies
o'er their brow.

for no matter how you shout it,
they won't really care about it,
they won't know how many teardrops
you have shed.

if you think some praise is due them,
now 's the time to give it to them,
for they cannot read their tombstone
when they're dead.


it being so cheerful that keeps me going!!!!!

I wish every hospital, church, school, business, home and everything else could post this poem for all to see. I'm glad you keep yourself optimistic and upbeat
