Find Your Heaven in a Cup – a poem and a song

Keep holding on, Never give up.

Find your heaven in a cup.

 

Mine’s a warm lavender latte

or popcorn at the matinee.

 

Hope helps me carry on.

Without it I’d be gone.

 

I’m blessed to be alive,

so I continue to strive

to live in this moment.

Be here now.

 

I try not to fret

for what could have been

or wasn’t

or hasn’t been yet.

 

Stop any negativity from staying too long.

Nip it in the bud before it blooms and grows.

Each sunrise brings a fresh new start

to make today your best day yet.

 

Keep holding on, Never give up.

Find your own heaven in a cup,

 

It’s nestled in the petals of a blooming red rose

or watching as your grandchild grows.

 

It’s in the rainbows or simple blue skies above,

hug from a friend or gazing into eyes full of love.

 

It’s in the white wisps of an aged dandelion–make a wish,

or the dark chocolate taste of a marble cheese torte–so delish.

 

It’s in your heart and soul, deep inside or near the surface.

It’s there. It never left.

Sometimes you need to search and find it again,

but you can. Hope is within your reach.

 

Wherever you find your heaven on earth lies,

hold on tight, never let go and hope will rise.
