The mask by jeanine b 

 I am happy when I can hear the birds sing to welcome the sun back from its sleep

I am  also happy when I hear the thump the thump of my heartbeat 

I am also happy when I see him

We put on a mask to hide our happiness and feelings toward one another

 I thought all you controlled my happiness

Your smile is like a ray of sun shine

I am happy that I am able to enjoy the little thing in life

WE put on a mask to hide our happiness and feelings toward one another

 

I thought I couldn’t live with you in my life.

But hay you wear a mask too hide away from world.

What does your mask look like?

Does your mask look like mine or do you just wear it to hide from the world.

 

I so glad that I met you. You showed me that I was truly happy with you

I know happiness comes in many forms

I always thought I couldn’t control my own my own happiness

A mask to hide our happiness and feelings toward one another

But I came to realize that everyone wears their own mask.

 You showed me how to take it off and live my life to it fullness.
