I Bet I Can Make You Smile
I am Christmas morning,
Chocolate ice cream on a hot day,
A new perfect pair of jeans,
And endless pictures.

We have spent summer days,
Vacations at the beach,
Shopping sprees at the mall,
And movie nights together.

You can find me in a child’s eyes,
A high school football game,
Any wedding or birthday party,
And the people close to you.

Some see me in school,
Some in sports,
Some in people,
And some in objects.

I am in the form of your friends,
Your family,
Your memories,
And activities you love.

In the winter I am snow fights,
In the spring I am blooming daisies,
In the summer I am cold popsicles,
In the fall I am red and orange leaves.

You can laugh with me,
Smile with me,
And always be with me,
But you cannot buy me.

I am feliz,
And felice.
So you may be wondering,
Who am I?
I am happiness,
And I bet I can make you smile.
