This one here, it is for Lisa
And she knows I’m teasing her
I’m glad you finally woke up
After winter went out in a blur.
The past weeks when it was colder,
you were tired and also sad.
But when the sun came out today
I almost thought you had gone mad.
Suddenly you turn from a grumpy,
tired lady, within only a short whirl,
in a colorfully dressed and beaming
almost dancing teenage-girl.
The outside world got more attractive
And I can see, you’re breathing life!
Go on like this, dear friend ‘in crime’
And soon enough you’ll be a wife!
But joke aside, it does get warmer,
We all should laugh more, and should smile.
It’s spring time, a very special season,
To feel refreshed, and show some style.
The world awakens, first blossoms grow
Birds are singing, happiness we can find
All over the place, so let’s agree,
We love to leave the cold behind.
