When Happiness Is Illusive - Poem by Leonard Dabydeen

When happiness is illusive

it is like a lingering dream

funny sometimes

to see you cry with a smile

with tears of joy

taking their own directional path

and meandering in happiness

on face and flesh

the tears being born out of a womb

where the story was told

where the echo from laughing

gave birth to a new friendship

a holistic feeling of closeness and comfort

more healing in its creation

laughing forever

laughing while time is not watching over you

laughing is your spirit and soul

echoing with the tears in your eyes

even unable to remember

when happiness is illusive.
