Feeling Happiness

Updated on February 18, 2016

Happiness such a feeling

that brings much emotion

making you smile all the while

your heart keeping beat

happiness can change a sad thought

and make it go away

one moment you’re frowning

the next you’ve got to smile

happiness is the key

to all that’s good

to all that makes life

so very worthwhile

when life throws me a curve

and it seems that I can’t go on

it’s time to count my blessings

and put on a happy face

happiness can make me dizzy

send me reeling with joy

give me a sunny day

and all my problems will melt away

on a gray day

as long as you are happy

spread your arms toward the skies

and dance among the raindrops

as long as I have my love

as long as life is good

and I can say that joy fills my heart

then happiness won’t ever go away

      You know Gypsy, when I read your poetry or even your articles on singers and groups, you always radiate a vivacious welcoming outlook with your words. You seem to radiate sheer happiness. That's nice, as is this poem. :)
