Ode to Happiness

Spread the love

Lo! to have gained happiness;
Seems like the ultimate dream.
Happiness lies in little things;
Tis mostly how it often seems.

Behold! to relish in the joy of others;
Beaming smiles upon their face.
Alas! the path of give and take;
So often ends up, to be the case.

So spread some joy;
These precious moments in life.

Come lie under the sun and bask;
Tis really isn’t so much to ask.
Cause happiness means to live in present;
The only chance to rise or descent.

  5. I completely agree that happiness is in the little things… and the big things, and the in-between. It is always there, accessible. We are responsible for recognizing it, seeing it, embracing and being it.

    There is no doubt at all, that sunshine brings me great happiness. It is a rare commodity in the UK at present; therefore my long weekend in southern Spain, brought me unbelievable happiness, when the sun embraced me!!
