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.
