A Happy Life


All you need for a happy life is

The dignity that will let you smile

Instead of forcing a grin

All you need is somebody who

Accepts you the way you are

No matter what

All you need is never to

Be at the wrong place

At the wrong time

All you need is to

Stay clear of all the

Robbers and murderers

All you need is a car that

Will always start in the morning

And never runs out of gas

All you need is

The open mind of a child

Letting you believe in miracles

All you need is

A bottomless bottle of wine

And friends to drink it with

    A fine write Fred.
    Could ya add: 'All ya need too; Is for Orchi to stop singing?!' heehee. Best to warn them of it!

    • FredPeyer

      I would never want you to stop singing, Orchie. Without you singing, the others would not know how good they are! 🙂

      • orchidee

        Oh lol.

      • FredPeyer

        Thanks Dove,
        after the last two lines it's not problem anymore to believe in miracles! 🙂

        I agree with every word Fred and feel very lucky that in my life, a life as long as yours, I have been able to be part of that wonderful life.

          Thanks Goldie,
          sometimes we forget to be thankful for what we have. And it really does not take too much to be happy.

          And family - great write Fred.

          • FredPeyer

            Thanks Michael,
            you are so right, I should have added the 'Family':
            All you need is a family
            that supports you
            and never gets on your nerves

            All you need is a mind like yours to come up with this needed list - can relate well to the last two lines Fred -- hic - hic..................

            • FredPeyer

              Thanks Fay,
              and by the way, with 'bottomless' I didn't mean you have to drink it all in one shot!

            • Neville

              you got it in one sir.. so ya did..

              • FredPeyer

                Thanks Neville, we all deserve a happy life, especially in today's time!
