Happiness can be simple
And found in the smallest things
Not everyone needs to spend too much,
We don’t have to feast like kings.
You will find it in an autumn day
Dog walking in the rain
Splashing about in puddles
Down a quiet country lane.
You will see it in your children
When they make you proud
When you hug them and they hug you back
And declare their love out loud.
You will feel it in clean cotton sheets
That smell floral and divine
You’ve shaved your legs and moisturised
And had two mugs of wine.
You will love it on a Friday night
Meeting mates down at the pub.
Catching up with gossip
Then dad dancing at the club.
Grabbing your favourite book
And snuggling up in a fleece.
Hot chocolate in a massive cup
Enjoying blissful peace.
All it takes is a little thought
Just think outside the box.
Grab your dressing gown, a G&T
And your favourite fluffy socks.
