When I glance I want to see smiles,
no matter the time of day,
to see happiness can go on for miles
there’s really no other way,
to describe how vital our lives can be,
and how quickly drained
we might become if unable to see,
the beauty maintained
in a pretty reflection of who we might
imagine ourselves to feel.
We have to recognize that every night,
we are never alone to deal
with quiet sadness, departures from good.
We can live together,
get along with the world so close we could,
really love one another.
We need to know our lives are free to please
we need to know that hereafter
there’s a way to get through our day with ease,
laughter, please, laughter.
