Happiness – Poem by Nesean Coombs

Happiness – Poem by Nesean Coombs

Happiness is th smile that appears when your love walks through the door 
It’s the fact that everyday you love her even more
Happiness is smiling when nothing goes your way
Happiness is family when you’ve had a tired day
Where do you find happiness do you look up or down? 
You find it in the mirror at the absence of a frown
Happiness can be described in so many different ways 
So let’s just hope when it finally comes it will never go away

Love After Love – Poem by Derek Walcott

Love After Love – Poem by Derek Walcott

The time will come 
when, with elation 
you will greet yourself arriving 
at your own door, in your own mirror 
and each will smile at the other’s welcome, 

and say, sit here. Eat. 
You will love again the stranger who was your self.
Give wine. Give bread. Give back your heart 
to itself, to the stranger who has loved you 

all your life, whom you ignored 
for another, who knows you by heart. 
Take down the love letters from the bookshelf, 

the photographs, the desperate notes, 
peel your own image from the mirror. 
Sit. Feast on your life.
