Happiness Is To Be Alive

Happiness

Spending time on a beach with my family makes me feel alive. That's happiness to me.

Happiness is...



to see the colors of the rainbow

collide with the church tower



to see your couch covered with scratch marks

because it reminds you of a cat you once lost




to wake up next to a stranger called Charlie

and realize he's your daughter's teddybear



to wake up to the sound of rain one morning

and go to bed that same night when the sun sets




to find the right key that unlocks

the door to your inner peace



to find toys scattered all over the floor

because it means you have creative children




to listen to your husband's snores at night

because that means you're not alone



to listen to your heart and its beats

because it's a sign that you're alive





Happiness is to be alive and live your own life the way you want.

Beautiful Poem! The best things in life are usually the little things, the ones most people don't pay attention too. Family brings happiness.

For me, happiness is to be alive, in Christ Jesus, and to have my family all around me. :)

Voted up and beautiful.
