(To Herald the Arrival of Spring)
Real happiness comes from within,
Free from sorrow, free from sin.
To lend a hand as one travels one's way,
To welcome the sun as it rises each day.
To enrich someone's life less fortunate than yours.
Wearing a smile can open many doors.
Erase negative thoughts from your unconscious mind,
And a fuller, richer life I promise you'll find.
Should unkind remarks be said about you,
Don't retaliate, it's only their point of view.
They are the losers in this wonderful world of ours,
Just take a peep at God's Garden of Flowers.
Yes, happiness is a wondeerful emotion,
Works better than all the medical potions.
Laugh with your mouth and laugh with your eyes,
And I guarantee you'll be enormously surprised.
