Instead of waiting for someone to bring you flowers
You learn that you really can endure
That you really are strong
And you really do have worth
And you learn and learn
With every good-bye, you learn.
The man worthwhile is one who will smile
when everything goes dead wrong.
And the smile that is worth the praises of earth,
Is the smile that shines through tears.


When my life has reached it's very end,
And I take that final breath;
I want to know I've left behind,
Some "good" before my death.

I hope that in my final hour,
In all honesty I can say:
That somewhere in my lifetime,
I have brightened someone's day.
That maybe I have brought a smile
To someone else's face,
And made one moment a little sweeter
While they dwelled here in this place.

Lord, please be my reminder
And whisper softly in my ear ...
To be a "giver," not a "taker,"
In the years I have left here.
Give to me the strength I need,
Open up my mind and my soul
That I might show sincere compassion,
And love to others before I go.

For if not a heart be touched by me,
And not a smile was left behind ...
Then the life that I am blessed with,
Will have been a waste of time.
With all my heart, I truly hope
To leave something here on earth ...
That touched another, made them smile
And gave to my life..... worth.

You Are Worth It!
