I am exuberance, once I shed my layer of today.
A deep and lasting smile lies just beneath the surface
So close and yet impossibly hidden, if you don’t stop to feel its rays
It’s free and rich and everlasting
It’s much closer than you think
You’re touching it already, let it shine through warm embrace
Like your breath, it’s always with you, if you stop or slow your pace
The smile is the trailhead, the tip of an Everest of energy and light within
So brush off the dust and sit and smile.
Happiness is closer than you think.
