Heroes (In Memory of Cheryl Rupp)

sunflower

It’s a rough and tumble universe
You’re gonna take some lumps
Now and then all of us
Are gonna get the grumps
It’s easy to be glum
In a world with so much bad
To celebrate misfortune
And paint the sky with sad

That’s why I admire
Folks who face the day
With a cheerful disposition
Whatever comes their way
You can be a hero
With a smile on your face
Attack this cruel, cruel world
With gentleness and grace

Richard W. Bray
