You who wait events to bring you the happiness
wait as much as you wish
but happiness is in everything persistent
happiness in the spirit
happiness in the earth
you can smell it with every in-breath
not only with your power
but also in weakness of a white flower
it is with the sun, stars, and breeze
and as long as the hope in the God does not cease

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

A little while a little love
The hour yet bears for thee and me
Who have not drawn the veil to see
If still our heaven be lit above.
