On the bright side all shadows are behind you.
We never see the dark side of the moon
which always shows its bright face.
Like clown heads in the fair
bright smiling face gets fed more often
with balls feeding hungry bright heads.
On the bright side all shadows are behind you
On the dark side everything is in shadows.
The happiness habit focuses on the bright side,
revelling in good times, highlights,
and also finding good things in bad situations as well,
The happy folks always look for the light switch,
or level control to lighten up a dark time.
The same cloud that darkens the sky, heralds rain to come.
Bright follows dark as surely as day follows night,
You only have to keep the wheel of fortune turning.
The bright side is shiny, sparkling,
glinty, glistening, gleaming and glary;
making donning dark glasses on the bright side imperative.
The dark lenses hide the pain and redness of saddened eyes,
avoiding the need for shade and shadow.
Stay hungry on the bright side, in your shades,
like smiling revolving clown faces, have a ball.
