Be Happy, Please
I want to be a part of your life
not something overtly dramatic but
like a subtle reminder every day.
I don't want to be a drag,
I don't want you to hate my memory,
Nor do I want to pester you with my permanence.
I don't want to be a scar.
I don't want you to think of me
and then have your stomach drop
and your feelings sink
and your heart cringe.
I want to be
The sunshine on your cheek when you wake up
The smell of freshly baked cookies out of the oven
A wave of nostalgia and warm reminders
A cup of tea and a good read
A comfortable blanket you can get lost in
I want to be a reason you smile. I want to be in your veins and give you hope and I want to change the way you see the world, people, and yourself. I want to give you ideas and...
I want you to be happy.
That's all, really.
