Poem: Recipie for Happiness

Recipe for Happiness

It's simple really, all you need
is a bed, good light, a book,
a bit of food in the cupboard,

A friend or two to share your heart with,
The rest has nothing to do with what is

out there. but instead what is within:
the ability to see
that God will provide

not what you want,
but what you need.
