Make It Up
Life is too short for grievances
For quarrels and for tears,
What’s the use of wasting precious days and precious tears.
If there’s something to forgive
Forgive without delay
Maybe you too, were part to blame.
So make it up today.
Be generous- forget the past
And take the broader view,
Cast away all bitterness and
Let the sunshine through.
If it’s within your power
A broken heart to mend,
Remember- Love is all that
Really matters- in the end.
