I Know Something Good About You!


I know something good about you,
And you know, something good about me,
Wouldn't this world be a happier place?
To live in, if people would say,
I know something good about you!
When we look in each other's eyes
And the smile you see is genuine and true
When we say what we mean and
mean what we say,
I know something good about you.
When we shake hands and find them
To be warm and true,
Because there is a lot of goodness
in the worst of me and you.
I know something good about you!

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Burns

When biting Boreas, fell and doure,
Sharp shivers thro' the leafless bow'r;
When Phoebus gies a short-liv'd glow'r,
Far south the lift,
