Best Day


When the sun came out today

Felt like the best day in the world

Happiness unfurled

Like a sail in the wind

Like a chance you get again

Like finding a new friend


When the sun came out today

Everything reminded me of something fine

Happiness took me by surprise

Like a yellow crocus flower

Like a songbird’s morning choir

Like a kindness unrequired


When the sun came out today

Don’t you know it took away all my fears

All my worries disappeared

Like a train around a bend

Like a letter that you send

Like a dream, you forget


When the sun came out today.
