If ever you are feeling down
Whatever it is that makes you frown
Just open your eyes and look about
You'll find something, without a doubt
To make you smile and appreciate

A smile, a glance, a hug, a touch
From someone that you love so much
A flower, a leaf, a blade of grass

The serenity of a sleeping child
Even if in the daytime they tend to run wild
A newborn baby so complete yet so small
You can't help but wonder the miracle of it all
