Let Happiness In

She was recently widowed
spent years caring for him
with his onset of Alzheimer’s
he got mean towards the end
she was relieved when he finally died

only to discover he squandered
their wealth, bad investments
and too much gambling
meant she would have to continue
working to make ends meet.

Then like an angel from heaven 
came a man who had been a friend
he offered love but she rebuffed him
he was a kind soul but too old.

After talking with friends she decided
to let happiness in. She didn’t have to marry him
or fall in love, she could go out to dinner and theater,
take trips, introduce him to her friends.

She’s having more fun than when
she was a teen and all because

she let happiness in.
