Happiness Poem by Juan Olivarez

Happiness

Rating: 4.9


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.

A beautiful summary of simple pleasures which shine beams of happiness into receptive hearts who appreciate home and family values. When I return to read this poem from time to time it amazes that no one shares such appreciation.10+
