There are times, when I think
“That is it !"
Happiness starts right here !”
Life’s filled with ideas.
I’ve waited all my life and now it’s here !
No matter what or if, it's here !

There are days that wake up
with sweetness
“Honey-beam, sweet, wake up ! "
Fill my heart to top.
I touch your chocolate hair and cannot stop -
to delve in sweet thoughts, sweet things, sweet flair -
Sweet things are in the air

Sheer sweetness enters, now,
that you call me.
Sweet is the moment as is, is sweet.
No-one’s here indeed.
And yet my heart’s a lively crowded suite.
Here I sense Happiness’ sweet presence.
