Happiness sometimes ups and leaves without warning. I wonder where it goes? A poem.

Happiness; do you ever find that sometimes, for no obvious reason, your happiness just disappears. I wonder do we understand this any better as an adult compared with our childhood?


I’ve gone to find my happy place, I had it yesterday,

I’ve asked around but no one’s seen it; or at least that’s what they say.

But how, I ask, can such a thing, that’s big and jolly nice

Disappear so totally; disappear from sight?

I’ve been out to the garden and sat in the same spot

Where I was just yesterday; maybe it forgot

Just where to go when it came back from night time darkened sleep,

Things can change just overnight when dreams can make you weep.

I looked behind the curtains, still closed, so just a peek,

Just maybe my happy place was playing hide and seek.

I ran up to my bedroom and searched through every drawer,

But couldn’t find my happiness; has it gone for ever more?

Everyone assures me it soon will make its way

Back to me and make me smile and laugh like yesterday.

But that is why I want to find my happy place and soon,

So I can feel the bright of happy and not the grey of gloom.
