A Poem Of Happiness - The Friday Column

A Poem Of Happiness 

A smile from a stranger 
A compliment from a friend
A day full of blue skies and sunshine
I wish Summer would never end 

It's the little things that make me happy
They don't have to cost a lot
In fact most don't cost anything at all 
Cheap or expensive it matters not a jot

A picture to evoke memories
A mix tape or two 
A hark back to the good old days
They stop me from feeling blue 

Uninterrupted sleep, a breath of fresh air
Pressing the snooze button on the alarm
Just five more minutes, I swear
A full body massage, I feel the calm 

A bouquet of flowers hand delivered
The shrill of child's laughter, pure bliss
Completing the crossword, a lover's caress
Silence is golden but noise I would miss

These things make me happy 
But I can find plenty more
Sometimes time out and reflection
Will allow you to open that door
