ODE TO HAPPINESS

SMILE

I said last time I’d make my next posting something fun and lively.

Yep, no more doom and gloom; I’ll avoid that like poison ivy.

I spoke of the word “mirth” and pondered if anyone says that anymore.

It’s a great word now that I’ve looked it up, certainly not one to bore.

It has a bunch of synonyms like glee and merriment, gaiety and joviality

A bountiful word that makes positive imagery always a happy reality.

So there now, that’s one happy gesture I offer in the spirit of spreading some mirth

In fact I’m sure there are many things you can think of, equal if not greater in worth.

I’m often told I’m the person who sees the glass half empty, but I don’t think that’s true.

I tell them there are lots of things that I think positive and it’s they who haven’t a clue.

Like falling in love and getting married or spending holidays with friends making merry.

Or how about that car you finally paid off or all the smiles in a pint of Ben & Jerry?

And speaking of food, now there’s some fodder for tasty thoughts we can talk about.

Where’s the best pizza? Who has the best fries or what’s your favorite stout?

Shopping makes a lot of people happy too, like buying new clothes or a big flatscreen.

Hey, I remember a great week at the beach when we rented a house sight unseen.

See, it doesn’t take much to think positive thoughts to keep you from feeling crappy.

Unless you’re stuck with no way out and that guy starts singing Don’t Worry Be Happy!
