Happiness is a new tomorrow


Happiness is a moment in time,
a memory to go back to in stormy times,
it’s something to pursue,
to continually seek for.

Happiness is like the eyes of a new mother
looking at the innocence of a new-born baby.
It’s like the laughter of a baby that fills the house
in all of its empty places
and it mends broken hearts
and redeem the fallen soul.

Love and joy brings back
the songs of the birds.
In every waking hour
life becomes special
and it’s like the spring
and a beautiful rosebud
that opens in the sun

and when you are happy
your days seem not to be so long.
It’s like a child swinging free
with her hair in the wind.

Love and happiness
is but a moment in time,
like water falling through your hands,
it’s the hope of tomorrow,
the brightness of today
and a moment to go back to
when you are old and frail

and it puts a smile back on your face,
it opens the heart and let love come in
and true happiness comes from the Lord.
