forget it!

(Author Unknown)

Forget the kindness that you do,
As soon as you have done it;

Forget the praise that falls on you
The moment you have won it.

Forget the slander that you hear,
Before you can repeat it;

Forget each slight, each spite, each wrong,
Wherever you may meet it.

Remember every kindness done
To you, whate’er its measure;

Remember praise by others won,
And pass it on with pleasure.

Remember every promise made,
And keep it to the letter;

Remember those who lend you aid,
And be a grateful debtor.

Remember all the happiness
That comes your way in living;

Forget each worry and distress,
Be hopeful and forgiving.

Remember good; remember truth;
Remember heaven’s above you.

And you will find through age and youth
True joy and hearts to love you.
