I used to think of you as laughter,
a friend I seldom saw,
and with age, I learned
of the darkness that you could thaw.
O' even returning despair itself
from Heaven's almighty brink.
I know you're the grass between toes
and moonlight dancing by the sink.
Or a friend who shows true concern
when witnessing my latest fall;
Akin to a faithful lover
who helps us overcome all.
So stay with me, happiness!
And I will stay with you, too.
Inundate me with your senses,
O' saturate my lacking point of view.
