Happiness is waking up beside the one person who gives you comfort, strength, respect and security. The person who shares with you love, friendship, honesty and trust.
You don't need to spend your days and nights together constantly, because no matter how far apart you are, no matter where your
day leads, no matter how much time or distance separate you, you know it is only temporary and you will soon be looking deeply into the eyes of the one you love.
The one you waited all your life to find. The one you know you never want to live without, but when that time comes, you will be grateful for the time you were allowed to spend together.
Your heart reaches out to them when they are not near, and theirs
to you. A bond that keeps you forever in one anothers thoughts. One that brings a visual image to your mind, even when you are apart.
You feel the warmth encompass your spirit, knowing they are just as eagerly awaiting your next embrace as much as you are.
Happiness is sharing hopes and dreams and desires. Magical moments
filled with laughter or sadness, joy or silence.
Happiness is feeling satisfied simply sharing the same view, or holding hands, or merely reading magazines, side by side.
Happiness is supporting one another when the road gets rocky. Knowing that someone is there to help you climb that mountain or help you rise when you have fallen.
Happiness is a secret wink, a sheepish smile, a stolen kiss, a gentle hug, a few words whispered softly in your ear, or a silently mouthed 'I love you'.
Happiness is knowing the one you love wakes up with your smile permanently etched in their mind.
Happiness does not depend on money or possessions. It does not need to be smothered in praise or adoration.
Happiness lights you up when even the darkest days threaten to overwhelm you. Your eyes sparkle and your smile is a constant reminder to others that you have everything you will ever need.
Happiness is what we all desire. Have you found yours?
