In fields unkempt And overgrown A farmer applies The skills he’s honed For generations It’s in his blood Patience cultivated Come drought or flood He tills the fields And plants the seeds Until there are No more mouths to feed Until there is No more hunger

Laughter

They say “Laughter’s the best medicine” And it couldn’t be more true Whatever your experience It’s sure to get you through With a smile on your face And joy in your heart Learning to live and laugh Is the best place to start

Maybe Today

Maybe today You’ll make plans for tomorrow Maybe today You’ll find healing for sorrow Maybe today You’ll live in the moment               … Sing a new song               … Breathe a deep breath               … Appreciate the little things               … Live without regret Maybe today You’ll live life your way Maybe, just maybe
