Those Who Love You

by Ruth Carter-Bourdon

If someone should hurt you
And say a thing unkind,
Remember what I write you,
And keep these thoughts in mind.

For everyone who makes you cry,
There are three who make you smile.
And a smile will last a long, long time,
But a tear just a little while.

Don't let someone who hates the world
Cause you to hate it too.
Behind the clouds is a golden sun,
And a sky that's full of blue.

If someone said a thing that's cruel,
Don't let it get to you,
Your achievements are greatly numbered,
And your faults are very few.

So if a certain person
Should act a certain way,
Think of those who love you
And don't let it spoil your day.
