Happiness … a right?
Or something you do earn?
A smile takes less effort
Is something you do learn.
But what is happiness,
Besides a nice emotion?
It’s birds that sing and waves that dance
Upon the mighty ocean.
It’s powerful and curative
This happiness you seek.
For when you feel true mirth and glee
You feel no longer meek.
The source of smiles is there within.
It rises from the heart.
So when you feel the need to smile
That’s where you want to start.
Give love to others; send it out,
And sad you cannot be.
For knowing love and sharing it
You taste divinity.
Bless others with a smile and know
The power of this great force
For happiness is not a right
But a gift from your true Source.
About the Poetry
All of the poems in this blog are spirit-inspired. Every word came to me each day for a full year while in deep meditation. I simply wrote what I heard onto a pad of paper in my lap with eyes closed – meaningful, multi-stanza verses in mere minutes. I was unaware of each poem’s theme until I transcribed it later word for word. Each day brought new and wondrous discoveries about the world beyond our five physical senses, incredible wisdom, and messages of hope which I share with you in this blog. The last poems received are displayed below on this page, but the entire collection of 365+ poems are archived here in the left-hand column. You can search by topic or keyword using the search box in the upper left corner. May you find among them just the right message which speaks to your heart.
