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

Streaking the darkness radiantly!--yet soon
