What Happiness Knows

The sound of the music
Not just the lyrics

The birds
On noisy streets

The beautiful air
Above the tall buildings

Blue skies
Beyond the clouds
Above the rain

The goodness
In all beings
All things

The perfection
In own self

Happiness knows this
Happiness feels this
Happiness shares this

Happiness is this
