What Happiness Feels Like

It surprised me at first
When the warmth started to spread
Outside of my control
Filling my heart, my head
It grew very quickly
Until it burned very bright
But then it just burned out
As quickly as day turns to night
I wanted to keep it longer
Cradled in my hands
So I could see what made it happen
In spite of life’s demands
It didn’t seem quite real
But a little more dream-like
And I realized shortly after
That that’s what happiness feels like
