Happiness Cries


Happiness Cries

By: Mackenzie Whitney

They say that happiness will find you now 

They say that you are done hurting 

You must’ve been in a place so dark, you couldn’t feel the light 

I often wonder why? 

Why you had to go away from me 

Was there anything I could have said or done 

I keep you in my memories, 

We still wear your bracelet 

And people still ask about it 

I cried when you left us, 

I still cry today 

Although I loved you dearly 

I couldn’t make you stay. 

I wonder what you’re doing in heaven right now 

Are you fishing? Are you flying? 

How much greener is the grass? 

Every time I think of you 

my heart still fills with pride 

God I wish somehow you could be here 

you know that if I have just one wish it’d be that you didn’t have to miss this
