Ticket To Happiness

Life can be so much fun.
If you know how it's done.
You can do this one part.
If you open up your heart.
So if you really know how.
You can do this now
Put a smile on your face.
Every time you go some place.
Share it to everyone you know.
Then your gloomy day will go.
When your smile comes out. 
There can be no doubt.
When you do this one thing.
It will make your heart sing.
Put your fears to rest.
Make you feel the best.
