Hello! It’s me, happiness on the line,
Are you willing to become a friend of mine?
I’ll tell you who I am and where I can be found,
But for this, you’ll need to stop a while and look around.
I’ve been at your doorstep before in varied faces,
More or less, you’ve felt my presence as I’ve left my traces.
I am a big requisite for your contented life, therefore very valuable,
But you’ll never find me with a price tag in a shop, for there I’m not available.
Nonetheless, I’m all around you, in your day to day, if you think for a while,
Look for me in nature, in your work, in your child’s smile.
I am in your abilities, in your attitude, if only you’ll hear,
I can become your wings, if your conscience is clear.
You may be walking on busy feet, and yet can have me,
For I am not a destination, but your journey, if you can see.
I can increase in size and quality when shared,
Which will need your relaxed mind and time spared..
There are many ways to reach me, and I can always be with you,
For my road is never under construction, but the direction is up to you.
Don’t call on me once in a while, but make it a habit,
You’ll always find me on the line, for now, you and I are together in it.
