Married people always want you to be happy,
 

Typically their definition is quite sappy.
 

It usually starts with a kiss,
 

And later develops into bliss.
 

 
 

For a single person,
 

There is a different version.
 

Happiness is being with friends,
 

Who make us laugh for days on end.
 

 
 

Keeping in mind,
 

Everything happens in time.
 

Don’t let one definition,
 

Become your main mission.

 

Happiness is a choice,
 

That is developed by your voice.

 

-D.L. Carroll

I say we all have to make our own sunshine and find happiness whenever we can and wish. It is not hard to be happy, just look for the good things in life and do them and go for it.
