THE EXCELLENCE OF HAPPINESS

Well hello there!
I’m very surprised being greeted
By you today,
Usually you sashay pass me
Without a word to say.
Now you sway my way with
Smiles and ecstasy,
I’m delightfully humbled
And pleased.
But may I ask: Why are you
Doing this for me?
Your company has been sought
For quite a spell;
And when incarcerated life
Became a living hell,
You didn’t appear to exist;
But my faith in you
Made me resist,
The eternal embrace of hopelessness,
So yes, I held on to my faithfulness
Of believing in you.
Now tell me Dear, why are you here?
What is that you say?
Since I can now truly appreciate
Your gift,
I will be gifted with rapture
So I can enrapture
Another?
Mmmm, that indeed would be
An honor to do,
I’ll adore being a true
Reflection of you:
Because Happiness is Beautiful.
