A Day Like This

Did you ever have a day when you said, hey, I am tired?
Have you ever had a day when you say, I am Sam I am
like in the children's book?
Have you ever taken a real good look at your life,
and said, what has this taken from me for everyone
around me to remain happy?
Have you ever had a day when all it would have taken
to make things right was a little word of
encouragement from another?
Instead, all they could do is turn up their nose like
a water hose and run off at the mouth degrading you
for what they thought you ought to have done.
This could have been avoided with a "thank you" or a
"please" behind their words.
I guess we all have had these days when the sun
seem to shine on everyone but us.
Life is a mixture of what could have been and
what should have been for all of us, I am assured, at times.
While on this Earth, talk and walk so you never
have to say I am sorry or goodbye to a friend or loved one.
A smile and a kind word will take you far or near.
Just remember, never linger here with unkind words.
Life is like a train running through your heart;
be careful that it does not derail at the wrong stop.
