Poem: Generally Happy

image

God bless you
If your loved one is unhappy
Generally unhappy
The lonely unhappy
The after-the-party unhappy
The no-one-is-calling unhappy
The my-life-is-hard unhappy
The never-enough unhappy

May you somehow overcome the exhausting focus of trying to fix that all

May you find for yourself
The alone-but-not-lonely peace
The after-the-party gratitude
The no-one-is-calling quiet contentment
The my-life-is-good center
The always-enough serenity

May you learn your own way
May you find a way
To be
Generally happy

May you look with loving eyes on your loved one
May you accept her as she is
But still not give up hope
That one day
She too
May be
Generally happy
