A Happiness Poem

Let's Not Forget the Bubbles

by AliMom

Childrens' happy giggles and bubbles
Sweet, sticky kisses for no reason at all
Cartoons and silly songs made up as we walk along
And sunshine breaking through just as we crest the hill

Tents in the living room made of blankets and sheets
Picnics of peanut butter and jelly for dinner
And ice cream, oh, ice cream before supper
Holding hands in the movie theater in the dark

Parades and fireworks that light up the night sky
Flying kites really, really high
Reigniting old friendships and unexpected letters
Bringing you up to date on the latest news

Spontaneous gatherings of girlfriends
Potluck dinners where the food is actually good
Chocolate in all kinds of weather
Running through crunchy autumn leaves

Knowing that God loves you even when you don't...
Those first wobbly baby steps
Stray kittens that find you when you're not looking for them
And butterflies that land on your nose

Trips to the zoo and the circus, and the park, and the beach
And into your imagination with books, books, books
Sledding downhill with the wind at your back
And in your face and snow all over your clothes

Angels and bird songs and playing in the warm rain
That first cool breeze when the humidity has been high
Potato chips and popsicles and being licked by a puppy
Finding a clean dollar bill in a pocket after a wash

And playing in the surf late at night in rolled-up jeans
When you should have been in bed hours ago
And rainbows!!
And warm baths on cold nights with bubbles
Let's never forget the bubbles.
