What is happiness?

Merely a translucent bubble of cheer?

What is love?

A well spring forth of hope?


I know forgiveness sews up the heart

I know patience invites kindness

I know strength allows fortitude

For love is all these attributes


Do you ask what is happiness?

Because life seems a little lukewarm?

Do you ask what is love?

Because life seems to hang from a thread?


Hold on to forgiveness, patience and strength

Love holds all these together like glue

This glue isn’t found at your local store

But it’s found in helping the in nearest passerby’s weary heart
