There's A Reason



For every pain we have to bear,
For every burden and every care,
There’s a wise and higher reason.

For every grief that bows our head,
For every teardrop that we shed,
There’s a reason.

For every hurt and for every plight,
For every lonely and pain-racked night,
There’s a reason.

But, if we trust the Highest the way we should,
Eventually it all works out for our good,
For S/He knows the reason.

Life Is Like A Mirror



There are loyal hearts and spirits brave,
And souls who are pure and true.
Like them, give to the world the best you have,
So more of the same returns to you.

Give love, so love through you life can flow,
To give you strength in hours of need.
Have faith, so the core of your heart does show
That you have faith in word and deed.

Give truth and your gift will be paid in kind,
So honour with honour will meet,
And a smile that is sweet will surely find
That the smile that returns is as sweet.

Show compassion and love to those who mourn
And help them to smell the flowers again.
The scattered seeds of all loving thoughts are outborne,
Although their sowing may often seem in vain.

Life acts like a mirror before King and slave.
It reveals to us what we are and do.
And when you give to the world the best you have
Only the best can return to you.

The One In The Glass





When you get what you want in your struggle for self,
And you’re toast of the world, for a day,
Just go to a mirror and look at yourself,
And see what you then have to say.

It isn’t our partner, children or friend,
Who judgement upon us must pass;
The one whose verdict counts most, in the end,
Is staring at us, from the glass.

Some folks may think us a ‘straight-shooting’ chum’
And call us a person of place,
But the one in the glass says we’re only a bum,
If we can’t look ourselves in the face.

We’re the one we have to please, not the rest!
We’re with ourselves, right up to the end,
And shall have passed our most dangerous, difficult test,
If the one in the glass still is our friend.

We may fool the whole world, down the pathway of years,
And get pats on the back, as we pass.
Yet, our final reward will be heartaches and tears,
If we’ve lied to the one in the glass.
