Happy


Who is happy?
Look at the bee,
Singing and drinking nectar
Of the sweet, smiling flower,
To her heart's content, forgetting all hardship,
Filling her small tummy and quietly falling asleep.

Who is happy?
Look at the baby,
Sucking her mother's breast,
With tired lips, in between, taking some rest.
Stopping at will, to cast a smile at her mom's face,
Who smiles back, with dancing eyes, happy at God's grace.

Who is happy?
Look at the mother,
Humming, as she suckles her baby, though weary,
Looking at her angelic face, basking in the glory
Of motherhood, indulging in thoughts that run deep,
With love overflowing, and together they fall asleep!


Who is happy?
Haven't you heard of the couple,
Always longing for a kiss and a cuddle,
Who come home weary after a hard day's work,
Jointly prepare a quick dinner and go out for a walk,
Hand in hand, sharing private jokes and the gossips they heard.

    For me everything is happiness. Whatever I do, I love it, if I do not like something, I do not do it, but this never happens. Every minute I give thanks to God for every little thing, I I never want anything. This is real happiness. (Report) Reply

    Happiness is quite attainable when one is contented with the simplest of things in life, find nectar in the apparent mundane, see pearls in the smallest gestures.
    a wonderful write indeed. (Report) Reply

    You have cited some beautiful instances when the mind will be filled with unalloyed happiness! Enjoyed the poem where each stanza begins with the refrain 'Who is happy' and lines, arranged in a special symmetrical pattern! (Report) Reply

But the tear that now burns on my cheek may impart
