Happiness is a treasure

that we all seek.

Seekers are the strong,

the modest, the meek.

Happiness will come

at it's own pace,

which is a truth

often hard for us to embrace.

Happiness must start

or end with what is sad.

For without sorrow,

how do we know how to be glad.

Happiness is never

carrying with us our drought.

All our pain and suffering

does happiness filter out.

After our harshest fight,

happiness shines a light

upon a miserable plight

that we must endure in life.

Happiness must surely

come our way.

For as with all things,

pain and suffering have an ending day.

Happiness comes come what may.

And when it comes it surely stays.

Because of happiness, we all can say

that life has it's salvation day.
