Putting Happier The Song Into Practice A Poem

A song comes on the radio.
Yes I still listen to the stations
That are local.
The song Happier
By Marshmellow.
Featuring Bastille.

I had only heard
But had not
Concentrated before
On the words.
Just making note
Of the overall idea
Of wishing someone happier.

Then I came upon it
After a YouTube selection
Of the Imagine Dragons.
Song Believer.

And there went my heart
The effing words
So God Damn poignant
The tears came too
How could someone
Write this impossible
Breakup song?
And expect folks
To keep calm?

I watched a few versions.
The first one the lyrics.
Goodness they tear
At one's soul.
How can anyone be so
Self less and let go?
How can someone
Wish their former lover well?
Wish them happier
And to smile?

Then the next version
Was a story of a little
Given a dog for her birthday
By her Father.
An adorable Golden Retriever puppy.
It grows with her
And as you know
don't live as long
As us humans.
Their life span lucky
To be between one
And two decades.

So she has to let him go.
And who will be happy now?
I can't put the words
To the story except
She ends the dog's suffering
And he is free to roam
In some land unknown?

The story comes full circle
As the is now a
And her Father gives her
A Golden Retriever puppy
For her birthday.
Making the now grown
Woman tear up
And of course any of us
Sad saps watching.

Thank you for the reflection
Of this song and concept
Of wishing happiness
For people or pets leaving us.
It is a good idea I suppose
But so very hard
To put into practice
Yes so very hard
To be so self less.

I just wanted to reflect on this song. It comes on the radio and I think of the guy who just broke up with me. No, we did not argue. He just did not see me as his future. But I still cannot wish him to be happier. It will come probably. There is no reason to hang on.
