Happily Ever After - Poem by C.J. Heck

Sometimes you have to use
a little mental floss.

Clear out the cobwebs
and live happily ever after
every now and then.

Watch the sun set in the water
from a wooden swing on an empty beach.

Roll up your pants and skip barefoot
through the waves and gather
sand dollars in your shoes.

Hear a child's prayers at bedtime
- and really listen.

Take on a dare
just for the fun of it.

Don't grow up -
grow down a little.
Life doesn't have to be so serious.

Puddles are there for splashing
and mud is for making mud pies.

We all need to live
happily ever after
every now and then.
