Half a cup of happiness

3 tablespoons of bliss

Half a pound of family

Of cries I’ll never miss

3\4’s cup of lasting love

A sprinkling of health

To add a kick to spice of me

A spoonful of fortune and wealth

A pound of cries in the midst of the night

Two drops of a little girl’s tears

3 teaspoons filled with loneliness

And confusion throughout the years

A touch of insecurity

Two pinches of lonely strife

Unending amounts of questioning

Like where’s the cook book of my life?
