Better Than the Best Of

Every day you wake up happy,
There are people who wake up sad;
Every time you have some good luck
Others’ luck is being bad.

Every check-up that finds you healthy,
There is a diagnosis not as good;
Every time you eat a big meal,
There are families wishing that they could.

Every birthday candle you blow out,
Someone’s birthday will be their last;
Every time you receive a paycheck,
There are people begging for some cash.

And even when our days are bad,
And it feels like we are cursed;
You can bet your bottom dollar
There are folks who have it worse.

So, be happy for your good days;
Be happy for your health;
Be happy for your big meals;
Be happy for your wealth;
Be happy in the knowledge,
That the worst you’ll ever know,
Is better than the best of
Some other average Joe
