SINGSONG

For Monday Poetry Train Revisited


HAPPINESS

How far are we from love?
How close to happiness?
If distance is the object
Will our hearts pass the test?

When two hearts beat as one
Our love transforms the days
And makes them last forever
Dark nights; light years away

Come to my arms and show me
How far we are from love
How close to happiness


Another world away
Across the seven seas
Seven deserts, seven peaks
Some days that’s how it seems

And in each others arms
As side by side we lie
A whispered promise to return
Each time we say goodbye

A whispered promise to return
Each time we say goodbye

Come to my arms and show me
How far we are from love
How close to happiness

But as we live, we learn
To give as well as take
To share each precious moment
That only true love makes

How far are we from love?
It’s clear from our embraces
How close to happiness?
It’s written on our faces

Come to my arms and show me
How far we are from love
How close to happiness

How far we are from love
How close to happiness

How close to happiness…?

...Happiness…
