Are you ever so happy

Are you ever so happy
you want the day
to spread into eternity

Are you ever so happy
you look at the soil
and see it grows flowers in your eyes

Are you ever so happy
you want the universe
to collapse into you

Are you ever so happy
you feel your heart
contains all of heaven

That's what love does
And all creation lives in you
Merry Christmas, Helena
