Of green cars and yellow butterflies


Happiness is easy to come by

It is in the smile of a stranger

Untainted with fear of danger

In the embrace of a friend

In the softness of that pillow at day’s end

It’s in finding a perfect song

For your current state of mind

In the memories of another time

In people who are warm and kind

It’s in the unfunny jokes which make you laugh

It’s in relooking at your rhymes’ first draft

In the solitude of your home

Of time away from your phone

Bliss is easy to come by

It’s in a state of you

Of shifting the focus to something wonderfully new

It’s in the pitchy songs you sing

And the feel of being a diva begins

It’s when you find

Something beautiful in everything that was unkind

It’s in the folds of a road

In the stories you are told

And the stories of which you’re a part

Stories which touch your heart

Joy is easy to come by

Sit beneath a tree and look at summer sway

Play with the raindrops or let the sun have its way

Let your imagination run free

Ah, the joy of a simple tree

It’s in the dance of the leaves

And the sweat in the warm summer breeze

It’s in the love of life

And the love of delight

It’s under your nose

Already in your sight

Happiness is easy to come by.

I see it in green cars and yellow butterflies

Bliss is easy to come by

It’s in the stories we spin, in truth, in lies

Joy is easy to come by

It’s right in front of your eyes.

And when you see it

Tip the proverbial hat to greet it

I promise it won’t pass you by

It really is easy to come by.
