Better Ones To Come.

We go through our lives

Doing the best we can.

Our lives can be so happy

But sometimes we have bad days

And that happiness becomes lost.

In our lives we must learn

That staying positive is the way to be.

We must also realise

That staying positive

Does not bring happiness all the time,

But what is does mean

That even on hard days

We know that

There are always better ones,

Better ones to come.


  • Neville

    I simply love your optimism Andy .. it is one of the reasons I pop back in here most mornings for my fix of it .. sets me up for the day ..........

    • Goldfinch60

      Thank you Neville, I am always optimistic as I have been given a second chance at life after a doctor told me back in 2007 if you don't have this operation you will die so nothing can stop me now.


    • orchidee

      Good write Gold.
      Yes, better days after that one in 1066, when I mucked it up!

      • Goldfinch60

        Thanks Orchi.

        Yes much better days since then.


      • Fay Slimm.

        Yes optimism - - I was going to use the very same word Neville has written to describe your outlook as it comes through your writing dear Andy - - thank you truly for another positively upbuilding read

        • Goldfinch60

          Thank you Fay, I think optimism has become my middle name.


        • Michael Edwards

          Live for today but plan for tomorrow - always weave that thread of optimism throughout your life.

          • Goldfinch60

            Thank you Michael, so true.

            “There are always better ones,
            Better ones to come.”

            Of course you’re correct. But when you have the flu you have the flu 🤧

            • Goldfinch60

              Very true John, hope you are better soon.

              II could have written those words Goldfinch. Always I know that a tim of feeling low is just a passing cloud and will make the sunshine all the more enjoyable. The lockdown passing cloud will add such a zest for life with it's passing.

              • Goldfinch60

                Thank you d a, yes life will be wonderful when this current cloud has passed.


              • Jerry Reynolds

                Hope- always a good theme.

                • Goldfinch60

                  Thank you Jerry, believe it is more than hope it is reality.


                • Suresh

                  We must treasure the positive as they will be a soulful crutch.

                  • Goldfinch60

                    Positivity is always within me Suresh.


                  • L. B. Mek

                    Laudable words my friend and each sentiment reads so very true

                    • Goldfinch60

                      Thank you Mek, much appreciated.
