Things That Make Me Happy

Things that make me happy
Things that make me glad
Kids that make me chuckle
Friends that make me laugh
Stuff that leaves me hanging
Invariably in the lurch
But smiling through adversity works

I can see you’re happy
I can tell you’re glad
These simple things in life
Are just the best for mental health
If this makes you happy
If this makes you glad
Then we have a future to shout about

And as I grow much older
Will those vinegar-ed chips on my shoulder
Waste and fall away..?

Things that make us happy
Things that make us glad
Things that make us wish
We’d an extra ten years in the bag
In a simpler life of bliss
All we want is this:

Lasting peace and happiness

Smiling through adversity works
