You Had the Gift of Happiness

You had the gift of happiness,
The unrelenting grace
To see the radiance of life
Within the ruthless face.

Cancer, heart attacks, and strokes,
Paralysis and pain,
A flood that left you penniless . . .
And still you smiled again.

It wasn't pure naivete
Or something just not there,
Or, even worse, an inner lie
That said you didn't care.

It was a certain blessedness
Attained by very few
That let you live within a love
Within the love in you.
