    God's Boxes
    >
    > I have in my hands two boxes,
    >
    > Which God gave me to hold.
    >
    > He said, "Put all your sorrows in the black box,
    >
    > And all your joys in the gold."
    >
    >
    >
    > I heeded His words, and in the two boxes,
    >
    > Both my joys and sorrows I stored,
    >
    > But though the gold became heavier each day,
    >
    > The black was as light as before.
    >
    >
    >
    > With curiosity, I opened the black,
    >
    > I wanted to find out why,
    >
    > And I saw, in the base of the box, a hole,
    >
    > Which my sorrows had fallen out by.
    >
    >
    >
    > I showed the hole to God, and mused,
    >
    > "I wonder where my sorrows could be!"
    >
    > He smiled a gentle smile and said,
    >
    > "My child, they're all here with me."
    >
    >
    >
    > I asked God, why He gave me the boxes,
    >
    > Why the gold and the black with the hole?
    >
    > "My child, the gold is for you to count your blessings,
    >
    > The black is for you to let go."
    >
