Happiness Poem by Garfield Grimmett

Happiness is state of the mind not a feel
many people believe happiness is not real
people say you can reach it but you have to work for it
i believe happiness is here but you just dont know it
happiness cant be bought touched or owned
happiness is a rare commodity that can take a life time to realize
people can recieve happiness through another ones eyes
its a state of peaceful bliss its a high that most people miss
i cant see it nor salvage it, i dont think it will come to me in an instance
but at least i can see hapiness in the distance

    What greater gift could anyone ask of life than happiness? Without it, what would anything else mean? Great write my friend. Best wishes
