Happiness - Poem by Slava Olchevski

Happiness is in the balance
In the balance of want and need
And that's just a first condition
That often gets ruined by greed

Happiness is a fleeting moment
Enjoy it when you are given a chance
A rose bud opens its lovely petals
For an instant, a glimpse, a transience

Happiness is in the heart of a child
Protected by parents' love
All worries and sorrows shall have to wait
Until he has grown enough

Like a child - I have no money
Life is short like of roses bouquet
I have all that I ever wanted
I am very happy poet!
