A Little Joy And Laughter

A little joy and laughter a little grief and tears
And living life would not change that much if you lived for a thousand years
The moments of self confidence the moments of self doubt
The high points and the low points that's what living life's about,
In life you cannot always be happy at least not every day
You've got your good days and your bad days life's always been that way
Like the flowers of the Summer we are quick to decay
And many turn to hair dyes for to hide their ageing gray,
Some of us feel so self important pride comes before a fall
But one day we'll all be equal since death comes to us all,
You only will find silence where deceased people lay
The dead of their life successes have nothing left to say,
The good days and the bad days the euphoria and the grief
Are part of the human condition and the longest human life in time is brief.

There! little girl; don't cry!
They have broken your doll, I know;
And your tea-set blue,
And your play-house, too,
Are things of the long ago;
