Happiness flowed like an endless river
About to burst over muddy banks
The smile shone like the twinkling stars
Lighting up the heaven's adorning lights
The eyes sparkled like precious jewels
Big, bright, beaming like moonlight
streaming from the heavens.
A tickle of laughter, pure, refreshing
Drifting in and out of the moments
Like the ebb and flow of water
The joy of the moment, entrenched,
for the memories that are yet to come.
