Happiness - Poem by Juan Olivarez

Happiness is being home again,
Happiness is walking in the rain.
Happiness is waking with no pain.

Happiness to see my humble home,
Happiness at not being alone,
Happiness to sit, and not to roam.

Happiness is family to me,
Happiness in the faces, I longed to see,
Happiness is once more being free.

    when I return to read good
    time tested literature tasty
    from time to time spare

    it amazes my crystal mind
    that so few startled share
    such appreciation insight

    in an age of video games
    stimulus on line music movies
    few appreciate good books

    Happiness Is Simple Pleasures

    often fleet happiness
    is a beautiful summary
    of simple pleasures

    which shine radiant beams
    appreciative happiness
    into kind receptive hearts

    hearts who wise praise
    home family loyalty values
    hold firm time true friends
