Or Happier At Least

I was happy,

TV nightly,

As a family,


Simple pleasures,

‘Any Umbrellas?’

Family holidays,


I was happy,

Perhaps the world was happy,

Or happier at least.


Author's Notes/Comments: 

Or Happier At Least was written around 2014 during a bout of intense melancholia tinged with nostalgic longing, only to be forged into a song lyric in early 2017.
