Oh happiness…


Oh the pleasure of happiness

Cannot easily be defined

It’s a feeling you often get

When someone is very kind


It can leave you feeling giddy

Inattentive and unaware

Because you’re so filled with wonder

It often makes people stare


The excitement you’re flooded with

Is often a rare occurrence

Which makes a person hopeful

For an everyday reassurance


Happiness for me

Is a state of satisfaction

Which causes a distinct smile

As an immediate reaction


It often takes a bit of time

To find happiness where you are

And yet when it finally comes

It can be strikingly bizarre


Still have yet to define

Such an extraordinary word

And the feelings that it brings

Can be quite absurd


I am however quite convinced

Of at least one thing

That love can fully be captured

By what true happiness can bring

  17. Good to hear and have fun catching up. I read what you wrote earlier, but couldn’t focus on it. Too much chaos at the moment. Will reread later when the noise subsides. Lol….

    Yes, it was quite intense that one. It was only written to expose what is going on behind the scenes and how it works, so one can better deal with it. 🙂
