Every day when I awake,
There’ll be choices I must make,
‘Cause once my eyes are open, I will see.
So whether I give or I just take,
The choice is mine for goodness sake!
There are other people in this world and not just me.
Let’s all make the most of life,
There’s so much to be explored.
Every day’s a special gift,
To be opened, not ignored.
Give our thanks for everyone,
Make a difference every day;
Try to be the best we can,
Share the things that come our way.
Now my eyes are open I can see.
