“You have to believe in happiness
or happiness never comes.
I know that a bird chirps none the less
when all he finds is crumbs.
You have to believe the buds will blow
believe in the grass in days of snow.
That’s the reason a bird can sing
on his darkest day, because he believes in spring.
You have to believe in happiness
it isn’t an outward thing.
The Spring never makes the song, I guess.
As much as the song the spring.”
