Happiness…

Happiness, happiness
O where are you
I chased her far
To make her mine
Seeking and searching
Feeling lost and blind
Looking up, looking here
Looking down, looking there
But O where…
There…
Off in the distance
I think I can see her
I know I can hear her
I’m sure I can feel her
There she is
Happiness is mine!
After some time
She eludes me again
Letting me down
Doing me in
Feeling the sorrow
Nothing left to borrow
Feeling the pain
Once again…
Losing all I gained
Happiness is like an oasis
With many mirages along the way
Thinking you have found her
Searching…
With someone always lurking
Leading you astray
Happiness is like a river
She ebbs and she flows
Til she fills a lake
Full of her stones
I sit and I think…
I just had her
Held her in my hand
O where did she go?
Why did she say no?
She passed me by
As she always does
But then I see her
There she is
A reflection
In the water
A hint
A glimmer
Sending a shiver
Looking back, as she always does
I ask…
O happiness, happiness
Where have you been?
(With love she answers)
Within!
