Call Me Ray

Easy for him to say! Don't you hate people like that. Actually, I have a friend who is pretty happy all the time, and I really enjoy her. It's only the ones who tell me that I should be happy all the time that bug me.
I got the idea for the first line from an ad on the radio.

Well Hi! My name is Sunshine, son, but you can call me Ray.
You look like you could use some help to brighten up your day.

You’re squandering existence on the wrong side of the cloud,
A dull and dim subsistence, as if living in a shroud.

You need a slight perspective change to set your spirit free,
And I could offer you advice that just might be the key.

It’s terrible to waste good time by dwelling in the dark,
So follow my example and be happy as a lark.

Aspire to always contemplate the lighter side of life,
Instead of merely focusing on misery and strife.


Don’t be content to stay below. You need to spread your wings
And soar above the clouds to see the brighter side of things.

Observing from my point of view, I think that we’d agree-
Your life would be much sunnier if you were more like me.

Oh yeah, I know what you mean - people with that kind of attitude bug me too. Nice job keeping up a consistent meter here!
