Be Happy, Don't Worry






Be Happy, Don't Worry


When I was young and in my teens

I dreamt of things to be

The day I got behind the wheel

Would set my spirit free.


I knew the day would surely come

I'd hold that sweet diploma

So full of dreams and youthful schemes

The smell of sweet aroma.


Thoughts of college filled my head

Excited, could not wait

Surely, I would find myself

And come to know my fate.


With my degree, I had it made

My life was looking up

Into the working world world I went

A time to fill my cup.


With wedded bliss, the one I loved

This was my bag of tea

A lovely home, a tiny child

So much was yet to be.


The ladder of success, I'd climbed

I'd reached my goal in life

With no time left for anything

My life was filled with strife.


Now middle aged, my parents gone

The aches and pains set in

The children grown and on their own

I felt a grief within.


The golden years were closing in

Retirement was to come

I'd waited all those years for this

Old age had now begun.


Wise and gray, I think about

Those years so long ago

And how I'd hoped for them to pass

A better life to show.


But through it all, I missed the boat

Be happy where you are

For if you wish your life away

Your miss the shining star.


Today is all that matters

A gift from up above

Unwrap the many treasures

And fill your life with love.


Whether nine or ninety-nine

It never is too late

To find the joy in living

To pray and mediate.


For fretting just brings sorrow

Today is full of spring

There's beauty in this hour

And joys that it will bring.


Forget your toils and troubles

Don't think about the past

Today is filled with sunshine

With blessings built to last.
