Poems on Happiness ~

Different Aspects and Factors


You cannot buy your happiness,

'Cause happiness is free.

Don't you know, or can't you guess,

It's there for you and me.

And what you do with what you've got,

Can change the way you feel.

Just do your best and smile a lot,

You'll keep an even keel. 

'Cause happiness is made for YOU,

Just take a bite and see

That happiness is what you do

With something that is free.

A Simple Good Morning

A simple good morning,

If I knew you and you knew me

If I knew you and you knew me,

If both of us could clearly see,

And with an inner sight divine,

The meaning of your heart and mine,

I'm sure that we would differ less,

And clasp our hands in friendliness;

Our thoughts would pleasantly agree,

If I knew you and you knew me.

Happy State of Mind

There are many things in my life to be

happy about,

I just need to notice them more.

Being happy comes from within and not from external things

I am happy to be alive!!

I create the happiness in my life!

I have faith in myself and my abilities

I am flexible and adaptable

I have the ability to change

Happiness is an attitude of gratitude.


Can You Sing a Song?

Can you sing a song to greet the sun,

Can you cheerily tackle the work to be done,

Can you vision it finished when only begun,

Can you sing a song?

Can you sing a song when the day's half through,

When even the thought of the rest wearies you,

With so little done and so much to do,

Can you sing a song?

Can you sing a song at the close of the day,

When weary and tired, the work's put away,

With the joy that it's done the best of the pay,

Can you sing a song?

"Of cheerfulness, or a good temper? the more it is spent, the more of it remains."

~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

Happiness for Today

Happiness is not lived tomorrow

it can only be lived today.

Don't try to catch it

from a day that's not here yet

life can only be lived today.

Strength is for each single day

time is not yours to borrow

you are given a measure each day.

So live it your best

believe for the rest

to be in His Hands lest you fret.

Take A Day Off

Oh what a Fun DayI

I laugh and say,

A day off once in a while

A day when I don't have to look at that dial,

A day when I can wear a smile.

Surely I'll make time for this

so it will not be just a wish.

Yes this day shall be mine__

it does not have to be sublime,

the weather not necessarily fine,

a day when I don't have to count the time__

YES, I think I'll have a Fun Day!

Janet Vargas © April 2012

A Smile

A smile costs nothing, but gives much-

It takes but a moment, but the memory of it

usually lasts forever.

None are so rich that can get along without it

And none are so poor but that can be made

rich by it.

It enriches those who receive, without making poor those who give-

It creates sunshine in the home,

Fosters good will in business,

And is the best antidote for trouble-

And yet it cannot be begged, borrowed, or stolen, for it is of no value

Unless it is given away.

Some people are too busy to give you a smile-

Give them one of yours-

For the good Lord knows that no one needs a smile so badly

As he or she who has no more smiles left to give.

In Us All

In a world full of wonder

In a sleep full of dreams

In a heart full of laughter

In us all, it would seem In the awe of a rainbow

In the clouds floating by

In soft ocean breezes

In us all, you and I In the song of a sparrow

As it welcomes the sun

In the mist of the morning

In us all, everyone In the Earth beneath us

In the heavens above

At the core of our being

In us all, there is love.

Dan Coppersmith ©

"Happiness is an unexpected hug."

What a Joy in giving

a life worth living

What a comfort in giving

He is eager to cheer and to bless.

What a PEACE there is in giving

That is the life worth living__

thoughts not for oneself

but the joy of others

Yes truly my soul is blessed!

Everyone is Beautiful

Everyone is beautiful

in their own special way

Everyone is beautiful

no-one has a say

Everyone is beautiful

no-one deserves to disagree

Everyone is beautiful

all of us, you and me

Everyone is beautiful

every shape, size and colour

Everyone is beautiful

don't listen to what others have to say

Everyone is beautiful

The Miracle Of Friendship

There is a miracle called Friendship

that dwells within the heart

and you don't know how it happens

or when it even starts.

But the happiness it brings you

always gives a special lift

and you realize that Friendship

is God's most precious gift.

Jean Kyler McManus 

The Blessings in Sharing

Only what we give away

Enriches us from day to day.

For not in getting but in giving

is found the lasting Joy in living.

For no-one ever had a part

in sharing treasures from the heart

Who did not feel the impact of

The magic mystery of God's Love.

And love alone can make us kind

and give us JOY and PEACE of mind

So live with joy unselfishly

and you'll be Blessed Abundantly.

Helen Steiner Rice ©

The world always looks brighter

when you smile. ~ Author Unknown

A Lift

Sometimes we don't need a tonic

but things to make our hearts frollic

Occasionally a helper or two

so that we could take off our shoes.

Quality rest, we would be blest!

The sound of music in the air

maybe new clothes that we could wear.

Janet Vargas © April 2012
