Happiness, Requiem

Happiness to a broken heart,
Is like water to a tree.
So be careful from the start,
Lest all happiness should flee.

Little things somehow add up,
To something big someday.
So make sure to fill her cup,
With affectionate displays.

Don't be a fool, it just won't do,
To set her needs aside.
She needs to hear it, just like you,
About that love you have inside.

Happiness can only come,
If you open wide your door,
The little things, that seem to some,
Will add up more and more.

Happiness is the reward,
You work for all your days.
So start stocking up your cupboard,
And be quick to mend your ways.

    Everlasting Abiding Love

    Who will infusion write
    superbly written proverbial
    parable in wisdom verse

    promoting the essential need
    of a stock of daily compliments
    to store up as a life time larder

    of everlasting abiding love?
    Secret recipe for eternal love
    is not mythical flame above

    small treasure gifts of kindness
    serve to daily alleviate life woes
    life serves all such bitter blows

    happiness bright source flames
    from true love’s treasure gifts
    in times of need this store uplifts

    Inspired by the poem ‘Happiness II’ by Juan Olivarez
