Happier


What a great day for me today
Everything were fine I felt terribly happy
My girlfriend confessed that she loves me
I hold my cup and drink my green tea
Boggling what would I offer to my sweetie
In return for her sincerity


Happy moments is like a chance of a lifetime
It’s like somebody committed a crime
And escaped the conviction in time
For him to celebrate at prime
Knowing the celebration is about to come
He jumped to the air and raised his arms
Yelling ‘I am free, mom’


A low wage worker strikes a big sweep lottery
Winning a grand prize of 25 million dollar
What a greatest moment to be happy
Like a sweet dreams, nothing should interfere
Now the reality does bite
Time has come to live with pride


A high school student could not believe her eyes
Looking at her final exam results
All straight A’s worth the price
Ivory league universities are the places to fight
For admission, it shouldn’t be hard
When you got all the qualifications just right
A great success to cater
No doubt a happy moment for her


A moment of glory
For a soccer team to win a world cup
To be among the elite of the largest pedigree
Erase all the fiasco and hiccup
Of pre-triumph
Let’s do the jump
A tradition for champions
Happiest moment has beckoned
You would be happy
If I say I am happy for you
This is true
To be always happy
Is something that we look into
Wishing all of you
A happy you

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

My books I'd fain cast off, I cannot read,
'Twixt every page my thoughts go stray at large
Down in the meadow, where is richer feed,
And will not mind to hit their proper targe.
