Happiness is a Balloon

Written by: Jessica Delisky

It’s always reaching for the bright blue sky
No matter the color, it is reaching high
It’s goal is simple, only happiness you see
Usually accomplished with the viewers glee

This glee is pure, easy to find
Just look at the smile, not far behind
Behind the balloon that floats so near
Happiness is a balloon, that is clear

The balloon is there no matter whats visible
Balloons and happiness are indivisible
As one gets older we tend to leave our balloons in the past
For me It will stay until the next smile is my last
