Each Day You Live - Poem by Ranza Devereaux

Each day you live be grateful
You are alive another day
Take time to gather flowers,
in abundance, to give away.
Give the flowers to the living
We were taught long ago...
Speak while they can hear you,
If you love them tell them so.
Do what you can for others,
Hear their distressful cry..
God sees how we treat others,
He knows when we pass them by.
Never leave kind words unspoken.
Greet each one with a smile...
Each day will grow brighter
Each day more worthwhile.
