Tell me what you want to hear,
pick the words to ease your fears.
Make sure that they all sound clear,
serene echoes linger near.
Swallow hearts that feel sincere,
let cold dark thoughts disappear.
Do not let doubts interfere,
or provoke a single tear.
Melodies ring in your ears,
sugar coat paths that appear.
Skip along with faith and cheer,
let it guide you as you steer.
Tell me now, from this point here,
is the future looking sheer?
Do you feel like a pioneer,
painting dreams that you hold dear?
Life transforms to less severe,
strong positive vibes adhere.
Every day brings souvenirs,
masterpiece expands each year.
Lighthearted, so cavalier,
confidence that perseveres,
Reflective, bright chandelier,
makes all eyes pause and revere.
