We long for lasting value,

I know I’ve seen its face.

But along life’s crowded highway,

We can scarcely find its place.

One day life wears a rainbow,

The next it dons dark blue.

The friend you always count on,

Will hardly speak to you!

So I offer one suggestion,

If you’ve ever felt this way.

Just try the unselfish mainline,

For fulfillment each new day.
