My October

My October
All this year
I’ve been waiting for you
Because you always bring me joy
When It’s your time of the year

My October
I know I can count on you
To remind me
That life is a happy place
And this year is no different 

My October
All this year
I’ve waited
to feel like I do now
I’m so glad you’re here

My October
You take my sadness away
And replace it with a plastered happy face
I feel like I have a million bucks
And my life has changed drastically

My October
Thank you
for filling my heart with joy
And for reminding me
That there’s more to life
