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 nearest passerby’s weary heart
