Be grateful

They say you don't know what 
you have until you lose it
Try to figure out what you have 
and use it 
For the betterment of yourself 
and yours 
Imaging what will happen if what 
you have is loss
Your journey through life has 
been pause
Only God knows the kind of 
damage it will cause
Your dependent will be force 
To face life [Your daughter, your 
son, your wife]
The feeling will cut you like a 
knife
Knowing that you are the one 
that turned off the light [in their 
life]
Happiness is not a destination, its 
a mood
Being grateful for what you have 
is good
Knock on wood
Always consider others in 
everything you do
