A drop of happiness


From the grief ocean, I steal a drop of happiness
For every autumn I get a lovely beautiful spring
For human youth; the festive, to dance and sing
We nature within nature; keepeth blissful fitness

When spring comes; nature with its beauty, greet,
Flower with hue sways and butterflies do flip flop
Calm breeze's sensational blush; a birth of hope
Seasons love, mingles with whole colour, they meet.

Know, a place in mind, away from the physical spring,
Hatching spring and brooding youth forever, a bliss,
Grief of the world; dry petals, away from hate, I kiss,
From the grief ocean, a drop of happiness, they bring.

There will not be a spring without autumn; no taste,
If no sorrow, what taste happiness will provide? say,
If no youth, why then heart will throb, gaily and gay?
Autumn prepares to decorate the heart with haste..

    From the grief ocean, I steal a drop of happiness. How clever you are to see and find a drop of happiness in the ocean of grief. I feel those drops may come from our memories of past good times. You steal a drop from yesterday in order to get through all the tomorrows yet to come. Brilliant and profound, Aftab. I give you a 10 for this one. Thank you for sharing and enlightening those in sorrow. RoseAnn (Report) Reply

    There will not be a spring without autumn, no taste
    That is the beauty of seasons. If we have one season all through the year, it will be monotonous. Change brings yearning for something new always. Summer feels great in winter and so on. Thank you. (Report) Reply
