Buying Happiness

They keep telling me
I can’t buy happiness.
They can’t be right;
I feel like I buy happiness every day.
When I buy food,
I’m glad for the taste
and the hunger it feeds.
When I buy blankets
I smile for the warmth
that it brings.
When I buy flowers
a smile becomes etched
in your loving face.
When I’m fed and warm
and staring at
your adoring grace
I know I’ve bought happiness.
I feel it in your warm embrace.
