Alon Calinao Dy (Samar, Philippines)
True happiness is hard to find
I've been searching for it a very long time
Many times I've asked the Lord God
Where I can find my one true love
I've been waiting for her a lifetime
Until now she's living in the future
I don't know how to reach her
But I trust in the Lord He'll lead me to her.
True happiness I've searched everywhere
I never know where it is but it's somewhere
I thought I would find it under my closet
But it is very complicated to get
Now my family, friends and God are the ones
Who take away my sufferings and loneliness
And the ones who give me strength and hope...
Now I completely understand its meanings
That if you look or find for happiness
It always starts in small things
One of the secrets is to be happy for others
And learn to appreciate their success,
But don't ever capitalize on their weaknesses
In order for you to have a volatile happiness.
