Wake up now, my dear old friend,
Your daily sleep has reached its end.
Embrace your worldly cares once more
And take one step outside your door;
You’ll find there, waiting for you still,
The tasks and deeds you’ve to fulfill
So do not waste another ray,
Get up, get up and start your day.
You’ll have your sleep again tonight
And when you do, you will sleep tight
But until such times are near,
Get up, wake up, today is here.
I thought I'd try writing something less complicated. I had a lot of fun writing this even though it only lasted a few minutes :)
It could be interpreted to find some deeper meaning but it sounds just fine on its own

That's the general idea. No matter how hard things may seem, you have to muster some strength and face your problems so you can move on
