Happiness Personified

Have you ever seen happiness personified?
Do you know what it looks like?
If you want, I can tell you all about it
This is a poem about someone, who makes my heart ecstatic

Happiness, believe me, is not very difficult to get
All you have to do is, to adopt a pet
In my case, it is my dog & "Rambo" is his name
The intesity with which he loves, can put all the Romeos and Juliets to shame

He is a bundle of energy, jumping around all day
Greeting everyone who visits us, with abundant affectionate display
Rambo is always happy and wants everyone to stay the same
He doesen't like it, when anyone, is in any kind of pain

Life can be hard at times, so I come home tired and dismayed
But a couple of licks from Rambo, instantly wipe the sorrows away
His energy is infectious, & he passes it on to me
I forget how tired I am, & we both start to play

Sometimes I have to be hard on him, & I hate to see the sad face he makes
But it is for his own good, It's a step that I must take
In this way, Rambo has taught me a very important lesson in life
I now understand and see my parents, in a much better light

Rambo's heart is pure gold
& there is no grudge that he ever holds
Every single time, when I call his name
He comes running to me, in the happiest mind frame

Yes he makes me very happy,& he keeps my blues away
I just hope that I too, am doing, the best for him in every way
Yes, he is happiness personified
&, you need to know him to understand, what love really is.

He lives the poetry that he cannot write. The others write the poetry that they dare not realise. ~Oscar Wilde more…
