Count Your Own Blessings

The heart sits down in his den
And keeps the eyes looking next door
And says to himself over and over again
"Better blessed than me is my neighbor"
Even as blessings keep flowing in
And then out going down the drain
And the gloomy heart knows no bliss

Smile in Style

As the smile comes alive in style
As the smile journeys from the lips in a file
The face that was hardened and rugged in wile
Lights up in delightful smoothness and tenderness
And on from there, like a wave it spreads and breeds
It captures the whole room like spring in bloom
Touching each soul with ample warmth all the while
And all those touched faces light up too in delight
And on from there still, beyond in such a thrill
The smile lights up the rest of the world for miles

A Blanket in Tatters

Everyone is pulling on the blanket in every direction
Everyone wants it to be in his possession
Putting up a ferocious fight to have it all to himself
To everyone what matters is his own self
