Something For You

I learned long ago to count your blessings
much time may pass in between them
Love and friendship is needed more than wealth
without them, you don't have real health

It's easy to wake up and hate the world
placing blame on outside sources
the school of hard knocks is learned as you grow
it's not part of required courses

To wake with a smile on your face
happy to belong, to someone, some place
Some days are harder no matter what you do
Mine became easier, in part, due to you

Weathering the Storm

Tossed upon the waters
Waves crashing over stern
fear of capsizing
has me white knuckled, holding course

Steady now, I'll right this ship
As best as I know how

Lone captain of this vessel
gazing onto the horizon

"Will we make it now?"
