The Joy of Living
The joy of living and giving,
Brings a happiness to us all.
To be loving and forgiving,
Helps to heal a wound if we fall.
The joy of caring and sharing,
Brings harmony into our life.
With your own life, be sparing,
And to others, help ease their strife.
The joy of being and seeing,
Lets us know our humanity.
If our inner peace we are freeing,
It will help to bring serenity.
The joy of knowing and showing,
That a better person we are.
Helps the world to keep on growing,
And lets our kindness travel far.
