Taken By Surprise

Rating: 5.0

Life may take us by surprise
Happy it may be or sad,
Attitude's what helps us rise
When life circumstance is bad.

In sickness there's always hope
That tomorrow may bring health,
In poverty's far tightened rope
Dreams of future with much wealth.

If children hurt and leave you
After labor for their good,
Send upward prayers in lieu
Of broken hearts and fired wood.

Friends may deeply let us down
With words that stab the guts,
Pick the pieces do not frown
Heal the wounds and mend the cuts.

Losing loved ones; death so brings
Grief and sadness take control,
Future hope of heaven sings
Life gets better; let time roll.

Life will take us by surprise
Are we ready to respond?
Let hope for tomorrow rise;
Daily living with much fond.
