Perfect Gift

I picked out the perfect gift
I chose to give you a smile
A ten on the Rickter scale
It can travel many miles

I know when you receive it
You will pass it right along
Perhaps you will convert it
Into your own special song

Then before we all know it 
A sad world can sing with us
People may think we're crazy
Riding on the happy bus

Like the Partridge Family
We can travel to and fro
All flashing our pearly whites
Putting on a happy show

    Nothing greater than the gift of passing on a little joy. I find the fewer reasons you have to be happy, the better. When you rely on reasons to be happy... that reason can be taken away from you. Well penned, Rick! Better to laugh too much than not enough!

    You are to young to remember the partridge family, if you have a chance do a google search, the show was a big hit in the seventies. David Cassidy was a teen heart throb.

    :) :) :) Lovely! I was a bit worried when I read Dark Hands earlier and was just going to post a comment when I saw this! Are you in a happier place? I sure hope so. I'm smiling now.

    No, not in a bad mood. just a strange dream and I wrote it down before it evaporated.
