At times when things are hopeless;
Ones you love are far away;
Remember the cheer and laughter
From a long-gone day.

Read what you wrote in your diary
On a day when you were sad-
Then read what you wrote the next day,
When somebody made you glad.

Look back at a photo taken
Of you with all your friends
Distance can never erase that
Or make a friendship end.

Watch a movie you made at a party
With no real meaning or plot
Hear the laughter and the giggles
And be thankful for all you've got

At times when things seem hopeless;
Ones you love seem far away;
Remember the cheer and laughter
Of a recent yesterday.
