what is the definition of happiness?

is it that warm feeling you get in
your chest, like one little pinch
could shatter it?

is is the two fingers pulling at the sides
of your mouth, so that your lips
look like a hammock under the night sky?

is it those goosebumps bathing
your arms, because you think 
that you’ve seen an angel 
walking on the clouds above?

is it the sweat dripping off the tips 
of your fingers, disbelief, because how could
everything be so perfect?

is it that feeling that you are so grateful
for yourself, that you are an amazing human being,
that you love yourself, through the highs and the lows?

or is there not really one single definition for happiness?
does every single person have their own dictionary
where they print their own definition of happiness?

maybe.
