You ask “what brings your  happiness?”                                                                                                         it’s not such an easy question as you might think                                                                                         the true answer can only be given in feelings                                                                                           but I shall try to convey my happiness to you


My happiness lies in the old songs that occasionally play,                                                                         in the stars that light up the darkened skies,                                                                                                 in the moments with my family when all is well,                                                                                             in the long nights spent with my friends.


In the times when I am carefree,                                                                                                                     in the movies I watch when I am feeling down,                                                                                           in all the places I long to visit,                                                                                                                         in the lives I live among pages and chapters.


In the thundering rainstorm, just outside the window,                                                                                 in the sunny afternoon spent lying on the ground,                                                                                     in old memories and in the promise of new ones,                                                                                         in the laughter of another day.


So you see, my happiness is not just a single concrete thing,                                                                 its a collection of moments and memories,                                                                                                 my happiness cannot be measured, but that is alright                                                                               my happiness can be found in my entire life
