When I’m not feeling the greatest emotionally, I occasionally delve into my memories and surroundings to find a reason to be happy again. Finding and appreciating little things that have gone unnoticed before that moment, or reaching deep into the archives to rediscover a moment of joy I’ve experienced before.
Sometimes digging about for something that makes me smile, I coincidentally discover something I wasn’t looking for, but none-the-less was there to bring me some happiness. That surprise can be as simple as finding an old message I thought was long gone, and seeing the flattering and nice things that were said in it. A simple reminder of why I found so much happiness in such a brief time.
Back I go,
To find something that brings a smile.
Not for good, I know,
But it will last for a while.
Searching my head,
I pull out only the very best.
Over the others, I tread,
Today, I don’t need the rest.
Now, what I need,
Is a great memory of you.
That will indeed,
Bring forth a smile that’s true.
Back I go, for happiness to imbue.
A feeling for which, I know I’m due.
