The Stirrup Cup

Go and be happy, let your soul be full
   Of love from someone else’s giving heart.
Let passion splash you with the urgent pull
   Of life to life, or fresh start to fresh start.
Go and forget the past, that dreary wood
   Where you were lost and couldn’t find your way,
And worked so hard just to feel halfway good
   And burned yourself out just to make things gray.
Go off and build a future that’s so rich
   You can live off the interest till you die,
And hit a home run off of Life’s best pitch
   And always dance and laugh and never cry
      Except for tears much happier somehow
      Than the ones running down my face right now.
