Brightest colours round the lake:
Nature’s beaming smile.
Reflections of pure happiness:
pause and think awhile
It’s every time you say ‘hello’
It’s every helping hand
It’s every tender thought and act
Instinctive? Sometimes planned.
It’s ‘glass half full’, and filing-up
Its time to spend with friends
Its sharing all those hopes and dreams
The chance to make amends.
It’s gulping down an angry word
With hugs and summer wine
Its fresh air in a vacuum
It’s the breath of love’s sunshine.
It challenges in soft rebuke,
Caressing with such care:
Make someone happy every day
Like this, an answered prayer.
