Times of Sadness

Do not cry for those who would do you harm
Keep your head stay cool and calm

If an enemy has you in their sight
Don’t forget they are wrong and you are right

Banish from your mind any would be foe
They are not worth your tears of woe

At times of sadness, while shedding a tear
Think of those you love and hold so dear

To be hurt by others is never nice
But God has a way of making them pay a price

Take comfort in family and true friends
They will be with you and their love to send

Times of sadness or times of strife
Play only a small part in any life

Times and memories of joy as you grow old
Will fill your heart with warmth and keep out the cold
