Scoop up the happiness

from each special moment

gather it gently

pull it in close

let it wash through you

brightening the greyness


Take in the medicine

knowing you are worthy

this is the sunshine

you have been waiting for

this is the love you can

reach for on lonely days

this is the place you create

for your tender heart


Scoop up the happiness

let it run through your fingers

feel the weight

and the lightness

watch it come

watch it go


Store the warmth

in the safe house

of your bones
