International Day of Happiness

How very sad it seems to have to say
The United Nations needed to proclaim a special day
The 20 March henceforth to be known, I guess
As the International Day of Happiness

How very sad it seems to me
That mankind itself just cannot see
Happiness is a state of being, we can access
Each moment of every day in excess

The friendly smile on a stranger’s face
A flower, a song, a hug - some place
Where we can give instead of take
These things true happiness make

This is just a simple rhyme, I know
Give it some thought tho as you go
About the business you know best
Think of another and you will be blessed

For happiness does not need a special day
We can have it anyway, every day, all day , what do you say!

A wonderful philosophy to follow Huberta. It doesn't take much to make others happy,just some little kindness, and in doing so we make ourselves happy. A lovely poem.

Good point. Happiness is not an event on a calendar it's a choice of the heart!

Good one. Agree. We could end up having a day for every emotion. Quite ridiculous. We should all strive to be happy every day. Rob
