happy feelings

**inspired by Happy Feelings by Frankie Beverly and Maze**

Happy words of giggling “Giving Tree” branches
your first hit in a baseball game
after all that fucking practice
Brand new ironed outfit
first day of school smiles
“Yes” checked boxes on passed notes
Getting her cell phone password
right on the 3rd try and finding
absolutely nothing to be mad about

The first few beers
the last few puffs
and the dreams that still make sense

perfect words
that mean everything you mean to say
saying everything you meant
while there is still time
time is fleeting
life grows shorter every mile
you better find something beautiful
to hold onto if only for a little while…
