Such a special time was had by all,
lots and hugging and kissing,
happy faces tucking into
huge piles of delicious looking food,
all talking animatedly ,
and listening and laughing,
for its the day to be merry:
Then I think but why are all these special days?
why should we only share love, happiness and community
on some special days and not all the time?
It seems to me that we ought to be
sharing these things every day
to help our ailing world recover,
so smile and greet, help and know
the people of your neighborhood,
including those that you think you will not like,
and then we will all grow
and our souls will prosper.
