with my arms wide open
ready to let it all in.
I’m not afraid to put it
out there my words, myself.
As the sun shines down on this day
I am who I am suppose to be and I’m
so full with truth, with love and understanding today.
That I feel like I could burst any minute now and
shower you all with the light and joy inside me
that I want to smile at you all.
And hope my smile just breaks through the sadness,
the disappointment, the loneliness or whatever emotions
And make you feel like even when you feel like it’s too much that
I’m here a friend, who may be a stranger but true to knowing life
may not bring a smile to your face everyday.
But that you can pocket my smile, and my joy, my light and pull it out
when you feel yours isn’t quite strong enough today.
