Happily Ever After - Poem by hollie ash

happily ever after is having a hammock in your yard, with a babbling brook nearby. it's always having a good book on your nightstand. happily ever after is feeling the body aches associated with hard work, and knowing a gut-wrenching laugh isn't too far off. it's crying when you're moved by a small gesture and knowing you have a friend you can call at 4AM if you need to. happily ever after is the promise that tomorrow the sun will rise, even if it's sequestered behind the clouds. happily ever after is hearing your favorite song or falling asleep in a warm bed. it's feeling your heart pound. happily ever after is letting go of fears. it's walking with the confidence that your beauty shines. happily ever after is still wishing on falling stars and having enough money in your pocket for an ice cream cone. happily ever after is a snuggly quilt, your favorite tee shirt and a genuine hug. happily ever after is in the details, not the landscape. it's when you feel strong enough to climb and silly enough to tell a joke. it's being able to reach out to those in need, whether they ask or not. it's a rocking chair and feeling like sticking out your tongue is an appropriate gesture on occasion. it's being thoughtful in your words and smiling for no reason at all. happily ever after is seeing those you care about happy too. it's seeing growth and strength in people. happily ever after is the comfort in knowing we're all vulnerable at times. it's smelling something that brings back a nice memory. happily ever after is reminiscing. it's a campfire. it's an open road. it's hearing someone call you by your nickname. happily ever after is having a forgiving heart. it's meaning it when you say you're sorry. it's waking up from a nice dream. it's warm socks. it's finding contentment in silence. it's seeing how far you've come. happily ever after is being able to redefine happily ever after at any given moment.
