Count Your Blessings!

Every second we live is a gift.
Some need a second to live.
Every breath we take is a gift.
Some need a breath to live.
Every happy moment is a gift.
Some need happiness to live.
Every true friend is a gift.
Some need a friend to live.
Every smile of a child is a gift.
Some need a child to live.
Every meal you have is a gift.
Some need a meal to live.
Every night you sleep is a gift.
Some need to sleep to live.
Every day you work is a gift.
Some need to work to live.
Everything you have is a gift.
Some need it in order to live.
Embrace these priceless gains.
Waste them and start the pains.
Alas! Advice is most needed
When it is the least heeded.
We greatly miss the water
If the well drinks its water.
