Happiness Is...That Friend


Happiness is...that friend
leading through storms
to safe shore of peace.

Like happy dutiful leaf
smiling even in its fall
to heart's silent cries mind is deaf.

Mind is free of modifications
soul feels free of mind's burdens
it is not to wonder and say 'Wow'

Living in now is managing 'Now'
to hold present is to letting past go
foetus of unborn future is in womb of 'Now'

Take care.
you are mother
of your 'Tomorrow'
