For Your Small Blessings

For your small blessings you ought to feel glad
Since few wish to know of the one who feels sad
You may think that better things in life are your due
But there are many who are doing it far tougher than you
You are one i have not heard laugh for awhile
You do not even seem to be able to smile
You cannot spread joy when you are feeling down
And few wish to know of a sad sack of the town
You have a job though not that highly paid and a home and a car
And a beautiful wife and two lovely young daughters how lucky you are
But you do not seem for to see it in this way
And that you do look unhappy does seem sad to say
That you are what you think you are happens to be true
But there are many who are far worse off than you.
