Long-term happiness has this slow way of moving
Where it eases the hands of the clock
And widens the eyes
It eases the sun into the sky
Paints a beautiful canvas
The flowers bloom their first breath
The waves sing and dance, then draw back
It sketches the pathway before your eyes
And paints it ‘morning sun’
The wind seldom howls, but learns how to sing
And whistles its way through its instruments, the trees
Drop their autumn leaves which fall, gracefully to your feet
Imitating the way in which,
Everything falls into place,
When you’re happy.
Happiness will come, slowing down time, and moving the world around you
Happiness will come.
