Being Loved

And

Loving

Angry words spoken

Causes unnecessary hate

So offer an apology

Before it's too late.

Being loved and loving

Is more precious than gold

Everyone needs friends

And loved ones to hold.

Keep a smile on your face

It frightens frowns away

To help your popularity rise

Be careful what you say.

Always give sincere thanks

To those who do for you

You'll be happy being alive

And those you know will too.
