A Woman In Search of Happiness

Happiness is expensive; it is something so rare, It's there to be savored, a moment that's fair. Clutch to the moment, extend its brief stare. It comes on suddenly but it’s all wear and tear. Yet I do believe that love lurks around, Just search for it since to it you are bound. You know that I found it in a most unlikely place? In a small poorly child, hungry with a dirty face Abandoned by all. So I gave her something to wear, Also some bread, a mixture of fruit, an apple and pear. When she looked up, scrutinizing me with glee, Her lips smiled tenderly, then giggled at me.

Love is all over, but true love may come once maybe twice. Sharing what you have with other is Gods will.

No greater way to find happiness then in the giving of yourself to others in need. Sometimes the only thank you you need is a smile. Your heart is tender and good dear Victor. Thank you for spreading your love today, :)
