Happiness Poem by Colin Ian Jeffery


Rating: 4.7

Happiness is elusive like the wind
Coming and going like migrating birds
And sound of echoing peals of church bells.

I would keep love safe and strong
Held fast within my heart
Never lost to furies of a purple storm.

Once, I was happy and royal with my lover
Not knowing it was supreme
And through folly have lost all to loneliness.

Happiness is elusive as the wind Comes and goes like migrating birds And rich echoes of church bells Sooooo True I think this is the way that God teaches us to appreciate Every moment of happines Coz it doesnt last, and if it does last we would lose it's taste Simply AMAZING thx for sharing

We live and learn. Where love is concerned, it's never easy. Seems we don't get it until it's gone. Nice perspective here, Colin. Linda :)
