“We Don’t Know”

Yes we know not the condition
of our relatives and friends
a sneeky peek at hear say
is where our knowledge ends.
 
I saw a friend the other day
I had not seen for a while
when I told him of my problems
all he did was smile.
 
Yes it seemed that in our time away
he encountered much of the same
the only thing different I do recall
was the doctors and hospital name.
 
You see the most have problems
as the days of life go on
so be careful before you start singing
that feel sorry for me song.
 
I’ve seen this more and more since then
so more cautious I try to be
yes the person who might look quite well
could be hurting more than me.
 
Now looks can be deceiving
so be careful what you might say
yet it seems to me it is quite safe
to part with “have a nice day.”
