Those Who Love You
If anyone should hurt you
and stay a thing unkind,
Remember what I tell you
And keep these things in mind.
For every one 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 !
If someone says a thing that’s cruel,
Don’t let it get to you,
There’s so much good about you,
And your faults are very few.
So if a certain someone
Should act a certain way,
Just think of those who love you
And don’t let it ruin your day.
Don’t let someone who hates the world
Cause you to hate it too,
For behind the clouds is a golden sun,
And a skythat’s bring and blue!
