A Little Happiness

the morning sun

a little happiness

the birds’ songs

a little happiness

the cup of steaming coffee

a little happiness

the work I get to do

a little happiness

the meals I get to share

a little happiness

the conversations

a little happiness

and the silences

a little happiness

and your touch

at the setting of the sun

a little happiness

your rising and falling chest

moving with your steady breath

a little happiness

and the dreamless, gentle sleep

at the end of the day

a little happiness.

And so it happens,

happiness.

Little bits,

every day.
