Lessons I Have Learned

A handshake speaks volumes, keep it firm & strong Learn from your mistakes & admit when you're wrong Stand your ground when you know you're right Never drop your guard or waver in a fight Never give up & put your best in all you do Follow your heart & to yourself stay true May every word match every deed Always lend a hand to those in need Things turn out better when you take time to pray A light heart & hard work keep the storm clouds at bay Hold your friends close for each is a treasure In your family, look always for solace & pleasure A light touch on the reins is only half the battle Make sure you set deep & tall in the saddle Treat horse & man with equal respect When asked for advice, be kind but direct There's a bright side to even the darkest day You'll gain more from life if a smile leads the way A true friend is one who cannot be bought These are a few of the lessons I've been taught By those who have guided me throughout my life My wellspring of wisdom to rely on in times of strife © December 2003
