I’ve noticed something lately that I never saw before--

My neighbors are so thoughtful and my family loves me more;

There’s music in the traffic and there’s laughter in the air,

And little deeds of kindness everywhere.

I feel excited like a kid the first warm day in May;

Like something great is just about to happen any day.

The grass and trees and sky look different;

The people passing by are different,

Could it be the diff’rence is in me?

I just can’t wait to find out what each day will have in store.

The things that were important aren’t important anymore.

I find that what I value are the things I can’t replace:

A happy home and sunshine on each face.

The joy I feel in knowing I have chosen to do right;

To know that all the past is gone and I can sleep at night.

My days are filled with simple pleasures;

Love and peace and other treasures,

And I believe the difference is in me.

Tag- The people that I meet are different,

The taste of what I eat is different,

I do believe the difference is in me.

Repeat Tag

The diff’rence is in me
Diff’rence is in me (3x)
