Friends.

People come and go in life-
so focused on their path,
they miss the world around them
and lose what's in their grasp,
blinded by the in's and out's
of life they cant control,
instead of looking inside themselves
and trust what may unfold,
believe a heart that tells you this-
" I can, I will, I must "
-I can be Great
-I will succeed
and in God I trust,
people come and go in life
so hold on to what you have,
take the time to enjoy a friend
be grateful, smile and laugh.

By. Michael A. Watkins.
