This Moment Of Happiness


If happiness only lies
In a place we don't exist
And only future days
Are one’s we miss

If satisfaction never comes
And dreams are unattained
Then you sacrificed your happiness
And only you’re to blame

The moment that we’re living
Should be lived with no regret
Don't let reaching for the future
Have you to obsessed

Find happiness
While you have your health
The evidence from pleasing others is
You may not please yourself

poet Sarah Flower Adams

O Love! thou makest all things even
In earth or heaven;
Finding thy way through prison-bars
Up to the stars;
Or, true to the Almighty plan,
That out of dust created man,
