Greet the day with a song,

Your face in the mirror with a smile

Run off your blues

It’s not about winning, but being.

There is silence for those missing,

Your heart carries them for you.

Hear them laugh and sing,

feel them take your hand in comfort

and kiss your cheek,

trade their wisdom for tears.

They want you to thrive

They want you to love

They want you to be.

Lose that argument with your sorrow; deserve yourself.

Emptiness is space that need filling;

Make room for yourself.

Cheer the endless good,

Wrap yourself in hope

And know that your life brings light and love.
