Dear Happiness,
    How come I can only catch you in fleeting moments? I don't understand you Happiness. How can you be so present and consistent in other human's lives, but you only show briefly in between the moments in my life?  Happiness, why are you so against the notion of being fair? I will never understand you.
Sincerely, me

Dear Happiness,
    It's been a few days. Yes, a few days since we caught up. In my last letter I complained about how unfair you are and I questioned why you don't visit me as often  as you visit others. I realize now that was unfair of me to complain. Sometimes I forget how busy you must be attending to your other clients. Other people must be happy too. I am not the only person you visit, so I apologize for becoming jealous; however you are not the only one who visits me and sometimes I wish you would get jealous of my other visitors. Loneliness and Sadness are frequent visitors in my humble abode. Admittedly, I'm not sure why I'm telling you all of this. Like I mentioned earlier, maybe my subconscious intentions are to render you as jealous for my company as I am for yours. Visit soon.
Sincerely, me

Dear Happiness,
    I'm assuming yesterday's visit was a consequence of receiving my last letter. Thank you for visiting. Your comforting company was very much appreciated. Even now, though many hours have passed  since we last saw each other, I busy myself by replaying our minutes together endlessly inside my head.
Sincerely, me

Dear Happiness,
    A rather alarming matter has come to my attention sometime in the night. Last night- really quite early this morning- Loneliness and his friend Insomnia were visiting me, and while they were over I came to a starling realization. Although, I hate to even write this revelation down in fear that it'll become even more painfully true, I cannot bear to keep it in any longer. The truth is, I think I may love you Happiness. I know this sounds crazed and delusional, especially since we've spent so little time together over the last few years, but it just makes sense. All of my jealousy, and my cravings to be in your presence, confirm my love. I apologize for burdening you with this realization, yet, at the same time, it feels spectacular to have this secret off my chest. It seems unfathomable that you could ever return my feelings, but if by any scarce chance you happen to also love me-or may one day love me- please get back to me reasonably soon.
Sincerely, me 

Dear Happiness,
It's been only three days since I came to terms with my love for you, but it feels like three years. You still haven't gotten back to me. It's pitiful really, but every day I wake up, hoping desperately that you might be sitting at the foot of my bed, ready to spend the entire day with me. Actually, I would be content with just spending but a moment with you, I don't need an entire day. What I'm saying is, please, please my dear Happiness, get back to me soon. I miss you horribly.
Sincerely, me

Dear Happiness,
  Shock. Complete shock. Completely shocked was I when you arrived at my home today. Last week when I asked you to spend the day with me, I never dreamt you would actually spend an entire day with me. Not only that, but you told me you also loved me today. I'm shocked. I never-in my wildest hopes- assumed you might actually return my love. This shock is so amazing I may actually sleep well tonight. Thank you my love.
Sincerely, me

Dear Happiness,
   Guess what? Loneliness hasn't visited me for an entire week. I don't know what miracle you've done to chase him away but I thank you. Maybe our new relationship is what chased him off, or maybe it's that you've been visiting me every single day, but no matter what it was, I am eternally greatly. I send this letter with my enteral gratitude and thankfulness.
Sincerely, me

Dear Happiness.
One month together and life couldn't be better. Loneliness hardly ever visits me anymore, and with you in my life, Insomnia is too terrified to fathom visiting me. You are truly the best thing that has ever happened to me.
Sincerely, me

Dear Happiness.
   This is the last letter I will ever have to send to you because you are moving in with me tomorrow! I cannot believe how quickly our relationship has progressed. Truly it seems like last week I confessed my love for you. Has it really been almost an entire year? Wow. Speaking of our relationship, I was surprised when you told me you were ready to take it to the next level. Honestly, with you in my life, life seems to good to be real recently. I keep walking into our soon to be room to stroke, or glance at my wedding dress. Did I really wear that just last night? Are we truly meant to be forever more Happiness? Life is perfect with you. I shall see you soon my love.
Sincerely, me

The End
