Waves Of Happiness

waves of happiness poemStaring off in the distance looking
for happiness that comes and
goes like the waves of the sea

Searching for that next perfect
wave to experience the euphoria
of an awake lucid dream

The feeling of a soft warm kiss by
the sun that gives me goosebumps
on my skin instead of burns

Lights of all colors become brightly
illuminated like a star kissed drop
of water everywhere I turn

The feeling of witnessing an act of
compassion between strangers that
rain tears from the eyes

The strength and will of a supposed
underdog that overcomes all odds
gaining admiration as the top prize

This happiness is hard to let go but
it must return to the sea to
be found again

I will always look for it staring off
into the seas hoping that wave will
return to me every now and then
