Feeling Happy, Smiling

I feel happy todayBecause I am alive. I can smile and laugh. I can be kind, To myself too, With understanding.

The sun warms me. The moon and stars shine. The trees and flowers so beautiful, Like loving family and friends. All nurturing.

Only need to stop, To look, listen, feel The constant impermanent change That holds on to nothing.

Here today, Gone tomorrow. Life is very short.

Enjoy the wonder Of it all, Smiling.
