Happiness Is

My child
just wants my time,
my energy, my love, my help,
the very best of me
my happiness
means a lot to her
and him
my little one is happily lying next to me
happy as a freshly polished pair of shoes

Enjoying this, this is the moment
or priceless moments
she will always remember
he too
will always remember days like this
when he is old and can hardly remember much,
he will sit in his rocking chair
smiling

etched in their minds,
they will think about days like these
today will serve as a valid reminder
of what happiness is
I love moments like these

watching the sparkles in their eyes
the peps in their steps
my cool cats
the rhythm in their voices
music to my ears
the random hugs and kisses
and I love you’s
this is what
happiness is
