I Know Something Good About You

Someone came to my door of my house Sunday, February 01, 2009. It is the Poem.

And my friend wrote:

I am happy to give this to you. I know you will appreciate it as the poem speaks so much of what your life is all about.

Wouldn't this old world be beter
If folks we meet would say --
"I know something good about you!"
And treat us just that way?

Wouldn't it be fine and dandy
If each handclasp, fond and true,
Carried with it this assurance --?
"I know something good about you!"

Wouldn't life be lots more happy
If the good that's in us all
Were the only thing about us
That folks bothered to recall?

Wouldn't life be lots more happy
If we praised the good we see?
For there's such a lot of goodness
In the worst of you and me!

Wouldn't it be nice to practice
That fine way of thinking too?
You know something good about me,
I know something good about you.
