I’m fresh out of my bed, touching my toes
Bending my knees and forgetting my woes,
Taking deep-deep breaths to expand my chest
My mood is bright, riding high on a crest.
Good food, exercise the essence of life;
With big beaming smile I’m greeting the wife.
I’m feeling good; feel on top of the world
And never utter a discontent word.
Positive thinking with positive act,
Taking life in my stride, ‘matter of fact.
A smile on my face, not a touch of gloom;
I am sweeping the house with a new broom.
I’m healthy, happy and free as a bird,
Thinking bad thoughts is just simply absurd.
This new life of mine’s happy with laughter…
…N’ I’ll start tomorrow… or the day after…
