The Six - My Heart Sings Out

To hear the surf or trill of spring’s new birds; A cat’s soft purr or strong and stirring words; Endearments whispered; songs so cute I grin, My heart sings out as joy wells up within. To see the sun fall, gorgeous on the sea; An unexpected rainbow over me; A moving scene; glad faces of my kin, My heart sings out as joy wells up within. To smell a rose; sweet lavender in bloom; Popcorn at the movies; favorite perfume; Aroma of Mom’s cooking once again, My heart sings out as joy wells up within. To taste delicious food when out to dine; Ice cream on my tongue; a lover’s mouth on mine; Cold drinks; desserts as chocolaty as sin, My heart sings out as joys wells up within. To feel a gentle rain; snowflakes on my nose; Ocean's breeze; the tides; the sand between my toes; Sun’s warmth; the heat of passion on my skin, My heart sings out as joy wells up within. To feel INSIDE me such a happy glow It radiates to everyone I know; The love that lets me know life is win-win, My heart sings out as joy wells up within. For Line Gauthier's "My Secret to Happiness" Poetry Contest *This is what happiness truly means to me and what makes life worth living!

Nature, family, food, romance, pleasant smells; these all make me smile, as does this lovely kyrielle. It was fun to see this come up twice in your movie. Hugs ~ John
