Stop trying so hard

And just relax

Take each day slowly

And give love back


Life is short

And terribly long

Painfully bitter

Yet a beautiful song


Don't listen to harsh words

Always be kind

To the lonely and sad

That are lost in their mind


Live life happily

And sing for the next

Laugh at a joke

And always reflect


You don't need sadness

Or any of your fears 

Life is hard

But you'll forget those tears


Because you are beautiful

Never take that for granted

Never lose faith

Life is enchanted
