Life Is Beautiful

Get the yellow out of your jaundiced eye
Vigorously bid your lingering blues, bye-bye
At the end of the day my friend
Life is beautiful!

The shiny white light of the new dawn
Has swallowed the black gloom of night, gone
Clear the lines on your forehead my friend, as
Life is beautiful

Constant defeat has made your eyes hazy red
Yet the shiny thread of hope is almost overhead
Reach out and grasp it my friend, as
Life is beautiful

Dreams of gold and riches lie shattered in dust
Yet be certain the silver fairy will remove the rust
Hang on to hope my friend, as
Life is beautiful

Daily grind of meeting challenges are a brown morass
Which the new growing green grass will surely surpass
Jump up and climb out of this hole my friend, as
Life is beautiful

Gray clouds cover the azure skies of your horizon, you ask why
Briefly I say, for surely you will regain the patch of your blue sky
Be rest assured my friend, as
Life is beautiful

Daily, the sweat of your brow is endless, under the hot orange sun
Yet when day is done, night heralds a soothing moon as your beacon
Be full of cheer my friend, as
Life is beautiful

Heads or tails, nothing is static, life is cyclical and quite dynamic
Change is progress, seasons come seasons go, all sounds are rhythmic
Take courage and keep the faith my friend, as indeed
Life is beautiful
You wake up in the morning, and your purse is magically filled with twenty-four hours of unmanufactured tissue of the universe of your life! It is yours. It is the most precious of possessions. No one can take it from you. And no one receives either more or less than you receive.
