Happy Poems - Encouraging Life Poems

I wanted a page of happy poems or poems that were
encouraging in some way.

Happiness resides not in possessions, not in gold
Happiness dwells in the soul.

- Democritus
 (tweet poem)

These poems remind us of all there is to be thankful for in life.
And that even little joys can have a long and lasting reach.


Look To This Day - Kalidasa - Happy Life Poem

A beautiful old Sanskrit poem. Very moving and hopeful.

Listen to the exhortation of the dawn!
Look to this day,
For it is life, the very life of life.
In its brief course lie all the
Verities and realities of your existence.
The bliss of growth,
The glory of action,
The splendor of beauty;
For yesterday is but a dream,
And tomorrow is only a vision;
But today well lived makes
Every yesterday a dream of happiness,
And every tomorrow a vision of hope.
Look well, therefore, to this day.
Such is the salutation of the dawn!

Sometimes - Nancy Byrd Turner

Sometimes when things turn upside down
And inside out and look dark brown,
I rush outdoors and gaze into
The topless sky's eternal blue,

So calm and cool, so still and deep,
With soft contented clouds like sheep.

I shade my eyes and stare and stare,
Then go back in the house, and there,
Begin to wonder and to doubt
What I was in a stew about!


My favorite happiness poem:

Always remember to forget
The things that made you sad
But never forget to remember
The things that made you glad.

Always remember to forget
The friends that proved untrue
But never forget to remember
Those that have stuck by you.

Always remember to forget
The troubles that have passed away
But never forget to remember
The blessings that come each day.

Any Little Word - Unknown

If any little word of ours,
Can make one life the brighter;
If any little song of ours
Can make one heart the lighter;

God help us speak that little word,
And take our bit of singing,
And drop it in some lonely vale
To set the echoes ringing.


The Sun Never Says - Hafiz

Even after all this time
The sun never says to the earth,
"You owe Me."

Look what happens with
A love like that,
It lights the Whole Sky.

happy poem about life and hope


Help Yourself To Happiness - Helen Steiner Rice

We are truly happy when we give to others.

Everybody, everywhere
seeks happiness, it's true,
But finding it and keeping it
seem difficult to do.

Difficult because we think
that happiness is found
Only in the places where
wealth and fame abound.

And so we go on searching
in palaces of pleasure
Seeking recognition
and monetary treasure,

Unaware that happiness
is just a state of mind
Within the reach of everyone
who takes time to be kind.

For in making others happy

we will be happy, too.
For the happiness you give away
returns to shine on you.


Starting Today - Unknown

Starting today:
I'm going to live my life to the fullest.
I'm going to have no regrets for yesterday.
I'm going to forget about all the bad experience
I've had in the past.

I'm going to do my self a favor -
To forget about the burdens,
To forget about the pains,
To forget about the hurts.

Starting today:
I won't let anyone tell me that I can't.
I won't let anyone get in my way.
I will do things on my own.
I'm going to be my self's best coach,
And I'm going to be a good leader for myself.

Starting today:
I won't waste time on the things that I cannot change.
I won't waste time trying to change what's in the past.

I won't waste time trying to be someone I'm not.
I won't waste time trying to hide my situation.
I won't waste time worry about what people say about me -
Or my situation.

Starting today:
I'm going to live like I won't live again;
I'm going to smile like I won't smile again.
I'm going to do well in everything that I do with no regrets.
And I'm going to shape my life for the better.


Happy The Man - John Dryden - Poem

Happy the man, and happy he alone,
He who can call today his own:
He who, secure within, can say,
Tomorrow do thy worst, for I have lived today.
Be fair or foul or rain or shine
The joys I have possessed, in spite of fate, are mine.
Not Heaven itself upon the past has power,
But what has been, has been, and I have had my hour.
