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.
