It’s in front of you, if you look real close,
and as clear as the vase that holds the rose
You don’t want to miss this profound craze
grab your readers, don’t be in a daze
It’s like a flower, so friendly and cheerful
Go ahead, seek it out and don’t be fearful
Remember the doe and her baby you saw?
After taking this step, you’ll be in awe
When you fall in love for the very first time
nothing can compare to your feeling of sublime
That’s how you’ll feel when you take this chance
You’ll want to get up and dance
Even still, you question my words
Believe me when I say you’ll be singing with the birds
Your life will be changed and you’ll feel truly blessed
When you look real close, you’ll find Happiness
