Must Be In The Genes



Well hallelujah, it's another great day The clouds may be covering the sky But the sun is shining deep in my soul No worries, no tears in my eyes Wish I could tell everybody my secret Believe me, I sure wouldn't lie Something to do with inherited genes Most likely the reason why Some wake up happy every morning While others it's doom and gloom Could it be a matter of mind over matter Think positive and spirits will zoom I'm certainly not an expert on the subject But it always has worked for me Realized I'm one of the fortunate ones I'm as lucky as a person can be Give it a shot, greet the day with a grin You'll be floating on air, just try If you greet each day with happiness and joy Everyone will want to know why © Jack Ellison 2013

    The Dragon is always happy (and some what petulant and spoiled)... but he can soar to the clouds any time he wants... Wish he'd take me with him.

    I am pretty good about being on cloud nine early in the morning, my wife wants to kill me whenever I'm too happy at 6 am, she isn't a morning person, she just wants me to go away! To be honest she doesn't mind much, because the cheerier I am it rubs off onto her and she become happier as the day goes on! My daughter is like me, very happy in the morning, although not as early as me, shes a late riser, sometimes as late as 8 am! But she is quite happy then! This is a happy poem! Great Work!!

    "I am pretty good about being on cloud nine early in the morning" That my friend comes through loud and clear! Methinks we're birds of a feather except I'm a kookoo bird! LOL
