Remember – a villanelle

No matter what you are feeling
If you remember a loved ones eyes
Smile and remember, you are alive.

There are days when we always wonder
Could the days get better than today
No matter what you are feeling.

You sit back and think special thoughts
No one can take those away from you
Smile and remember, you are alive.

There are always stresses in our lives
There are always those less fortunate
No matter what you are feeling.

You were never guaranteed anything
Everyone faces the pressures of life
Smile and remember, you are alive.

Even those that seem to have hit bottom
Are at least given a chance to get up
No matter what you are feeling
Smile and remember, you are alive.
