“Appreciating Happiness”

By Ashley O’Hare

Happiness is a gift.

When your heart

swells with warmth

and your mind

finds quiet peace–

take your time.
Close your eyes

and allow the experience

to change your life.

Appreciate it

while it is around.

There is no countdown.

There is no way to know

when overwhelming joy

will move on to someone else.

Happiness will return–

keep your heart open

and your chin up.
