A Drop Of Happiness - Poem by Aftab Alam

From the grief ocean, I steal, a drop of happiness,
For every autumn, I get a lovely beautiful spring,
For human youth; the festive, to dance and sing,
We nature, within nature; keepeth blissful fitness,

When spring comes, nature with its beauty; greet,
Flower with hue sways and butterflies do flip flop,
Calm breeze's sensational blush; a birth of hope,
Seasons love, mingles with whole color, they meet.

Know, a place in mind, away from the physical spring,
Hatching spring and brooding youth forever, a bliss,
Grief of the world; dry petals, away from hate, I kiss,
From the grief ocean, a drop of happiness, they bring.

There will not be a spring without autumn; no taste,
If no sorrow, what taste happiness will provide, say?
If no youth, why then heart will throb; gaily and gay?
Autumn prepares to decorate the heart with haste..

    A wonderful depiction of happiness! Indeed, who would look for happiness if there is no sorrow? Darkness is meaningful because of darkness! Very nice! (Report)Reply

    From the grief ocean, I steal a drop of happiness. How clever you are to see and find a drop of happiness in the ocean of grief. I feel those drops may come from our memories of past good times. You steal a drop from yesterday in order to get through all the tomorrows yet to come. Brilliant and profound, Aftab. I give you a 10 for this one. Thank you for sharing and enlightening those in sorrow. RoseAnn (Report)Reply
