THINGS SAM NEVER
Most folks know how
From some, few thanks are ever earned;
A smile would cause someís lips to break;
These kind of things Sam never learned
There are precious few folks like Sam:
Heís always up and never down;
Heís a better man than I am,
For he never learned how to frown
Sam never fails to have a smile
In spite of discomforts and pain;
Whining is not part of his style,
For he never learned to complain.
No matter what may come Samís way
Heís always in a thankful mood
And counts his blessings every day;
He never learned ingratitude.
Why is Sam
such a happy guy,
Both on the outside and within?
There are only two reasons why:
His faith in God and Marilyn.
