"My Heart"

My happiness is so transparent
And everyone can see -
No matter how I try to hide it
But the old man is so very wise
He reminded me how momentary
True happiness really is
That one can clearly count the days
And remember each and every time
The heart was filled with gladness
And to count the other days
Would be like trying to count
Grains of sand upon the shore
Or the stars in the heavens

My heart is filled to bursting
And I am so content
My heart is filled with my love
To such an overflow
My heart rises with the Sun
In the East at every dawn
And it sets in the West
Full at every dusk
My heart beats wild in contentment
At every look from you
And at every look at you
And I want everyone to know -
Especially you
