The Things That Make Me Happy
What makes me happy , well Iím a happy sort of bloke,
I get on well with everyone & no disdain will I provoke,
Life is what you make it, yes itís really up to you,
To enjoy the things that make you happy and happiness accrue.
Number one is my family, they fill my cup with joy,
Four lovely maidens fair & tall & a smart upstanding boy,
And presiding over all is my caring loving wife,
What more could one ask for to give me a happy life.
I have eleven grandkids that are very dear to me,
I count my blessings every day for such a wonderful family,
They are spread in places near and far but we keep in touch,
A phone call or an email, always means to me so much.
Thereís also a great little dog that greats us every day
With a wagging tail & a bit of a lick, she keeps all blues away,
She always brings to both of us a real sense of delight
And any troubles showing up, soon pass right out of sight.
To me there are so many things that brighten up each day
And if the clouds should start to loom I push them far away,
For I know that up above the clouds the sun is shining bright
And I know that if Iím patient it will soon come into sight.
To stand out in the moonlight with stars twinkling over- head
Brings to me a sense of peace, with all worries prohibited,
To walk through the virgin bush-land and smell the scented air
And taste the early morning breeze that gently whispers there.
All the wonders seen in nature are a beauty to behold,
It gives me an awesome feeling to see all new life unfold,
The new lambs gamboling it the fields, little birds in their nest,
Brings to me a sense of pleasure in which we should all invest.
These are the things that make me happy but thereís many more,
To enjoy each day as it comes along & my good fortune not ignore,
I think that what really matters is what happens in the end,
To have the love and fellowship of all my very good friends.
Well these are some of the things that keep me happy all the while
And to enjoy every one of them Iíll certainly always strive,
Enjoy each day as it comes along & always wear a smile,
For fortune fair has smiled on me for Iím glad to be alive.
