Be grateful for each sunrise,
That starts each brand new day,
Be happy for the chance to make,
A brand new friend today.
For new friends are like rare jewels,
That you collect and keep,
New friends can help you with the load,
That sometimes makes you weep.
Only you control the number
Of jewels that you collect,
Although you do not flaunt them,
Or wear them ‘round your neck.
Each friend you make and call your own,
Adds more to your collection,
For you to enjoy and think about,
And is only a reflection…
Of kind words and a friendly smile,
That you have given them,
The rarest jewel that you can find,
Is to make another friend.
