“Please
give me strength to laugh
the strength to try
the strength to laugh
the strength to cry
the strength to hope
the strength to cope
the strength to one day say good-bye
to fly into a bright sky.”
Lee Bennett Hopkins, Been to Yesterdays: Poems of a Life

“Just when everything seems to go along just fine, Life comes by and throws you its line.”
Lee Bennett Hopkins, Been to Yesterdays: Poems of a Life
tags: life

“Been to yesterdays,
lived through todays.
Looking on toward tomorrows -
new characters, new plays.

The whys of life change,
and so do ways,
new scenery is built,
to fill an empty stage.”
Lee Bennett Hopkins, Been to Yesterdays: Poems of a Life
