Happiness is a special moment

when your focus is on one thing;

You think of nothing else except

the tender joy it brings.

Lost in your lover’s arms;

watching a baby’s enchanting charms;

Glued to the moment you watch autumn-leaves fall;

or see a perfect sunset - one above all.

A moment you spend playing with your pet -

when your hearts are happy and free;

Watching the moon and stars at night -

a moment, in awe, to just see.

Happiness is just a moment -

but lasts a lifetime;

An unforgetable moment

that’s yours to keep for all time.
