Good News

If you could use
A little good news
To help you get through the day

Have no fear
There’s lots of cheer
That I can bring your way

With my own eyes
I saw varicolored skies
As the sun rose in the east

The morning breeze
Put my mind to ease
As I enjoyed the harlequin feast

It wasn’t too long
‘Fore I heard the sweet song
Of the mynah on my windowsill

A bracing April shower
A carpet of jasmine flowers
My cup of bliss began to fill

I turned around
And to my delight, found
My loved one smiling at me

Yes, I am housebound
But my pleasures abound
Because I am happy just to be

When you feel stressed
Miserable, depressed
Just know that you will survive

When you keep your eyes
On life’s simple joys
You’ll know it’s great to be alive

Lose your fear and greed
Help those in dire need
Be generous, have an open mind

Dig into your reserve
To protect and to serve
Together, let’s save humankind
