"Road Challenge", oil, by Stephen Goodman

He had a friend
who was full of happiness,
and because of that,
he also was happy.
He saw that happiness
is like sunlight,
something that can’t be
measured or collected
or kept to one person.
It spreads evenly
across our lives
as we sleep or visit a store
or set out in search of it,
or just as we sit
in our secret sadness,
not noticing the happiness
that always fills the universe
and always waits.
