MAYBE I'M AMAZED:

MAYBE I'M AMAZED:
(my gratitude to you all)

Maybe I'm amazed at life's twists and turns.
One moment you're on top of the world,
The next to the depths of despair.
Maybe I'm amazed at how different people cope
Although your heart may be breaking
You appear to be walking on air.
Maybe I'm amazed at people's attitude.
Walking past a down and out
Only thinking of their own lives.
Is that what life is all about?
Maybe I'm amazed at all the friends I've made,
All you folk are a fine example,
Your kindness is beyond compare.
Thank you one and all for giving me a sample.
 
Have a wonderful week-end.
