ODE TO BEING HAPPY

Happiness is a state of mind
Not a state of being
It isnít wealth youíll find
Nor of things youíre seeing

Itís not a search eternal
With all lifeís ups and downs
Itís a condition quite abnormal
With humanityís worried frowns.

Itís a rare and precious smile
A warm hug from a friend
Those who stay a while
With warm time you gladly spend.

A warm and cosy fire
Inside from winterís wind.
Of love you never tire
From those who are so kind.

Take time to think about it
Those times youíve felt so good
Happiness just seemed to fit
The way it always should.
