Good Days

God bless the good days.
Days a smile is no stranger to your face. 
Days your favorite songs play, and you sing along. 
Days faith is restored in humanity. 
Days sunshine and fresh air makes life seem fair.
Days you feel the gentle touch of love. 

Good days will see you through tough days, 
down days,
diseased days,
bitter days that never seem to end, 
days you have no friends, 
days that make no sense.

I pray your good days 
out-number the tough days,
and you recognize good days 
when they arrive, on butterfly wings.

Thanks MC! I love learning about great musicians. Pretty cool that Local Hero has been made into a musical too!

Carpe Diem! The song would have fitted in with the Mark Knopfler
music for the film "Local Hero".

I agree Tom! We often take life for granted. Embracing the moment keeps the magic alive! 💖
