Change of Heart
“Why do you look so sad?” asked my friend Chad.
“It’s because of the bad day I’ve had!”
He asked, “What’s wrong with your eyes?”
Now that was a big surprise!
As he and I sat to chat
I asked him what he meant by that.
He relied, “You’re looking at things all wrong
And that can make you sad all day long.
You have people who love and care,
Good food to eat and clothes to wear.”
I said, “Yes, of course that’s true.”
Chad added, “Some folks don’t have what you do.
I said, “You are right in what you say
But I have had an awful day.”
He said, “You can’t smile when wearing a frown
“Or see the sun when looking down.
I nodded my noggin and had to agree.
Today began to look good to me.
“You’re right! I’m having a wonderful day!”
I thanked Chad and went on my way.
Now when things go wrong for a while
I turn my frown upside down
Into a smile.
