When happy doth the flower bloom
I know you’ve beaten doom and gloom.
When drooping leaves wither away,
I pray soon comes a brighter day.
A morning filled with love and light,
A peaceful slumber through the night.
With joyful times to store inside,
Your heart where darkness cannot hide.
Cherished moments sojourn there
Within your soul, your secret lair.
An arrsonel inside your heart
When life calls for a swift jump start.
They wait there, when you’re in a bind.
Those moments; deep inside you’ll find.
Yesterday’s bliss you wish would last
That seemed to fly by all too fast.
Yet unbeknownst to you and me.
Those precious times don’t truly flee.
They merely vanish from our sights
Dormant until our pain ignites.
Prisoned in hearts to set us free
Memories that come without a fee.
But cost it does when we forget
And fail to know we need not fret.
We merely must cast in a line
And fish for moments lost in time.
Treasured mem’ries waiting there
To help when life feels hard to bare.
Like sunshine to a listless flower,
Past joy can give our present power.
Next time you feel glum don’t forget,
What matters is your heart–let it.
