The Song Of Happiness – #Celebrating Life…

‘The Song Of Happiness – Celebrating Life…’
Little things that makes me happy and feel a big smile. That makes me celebrate life, every day.

Happiness…
What is the cost, I cried, riches, big house,
They said, I tried, hard to find it, and
Even after big houses, a hefty bank balance,
Where is the happiness I desired?

Happiness…
I dearly sought, celebrations in life become
Scarce. Sometimes invalid. Wishing big,
I bought another house. A new account. But,
Where is the celebratory mood I wanted?

Happiness…
Isn’t under the earth, or inside the locker.
It is for everyone to access, easy, a saint said,
Not with the riches and houses will it come,
Nor will it cost such a grand fortune.

Happiness…
Is in the simple pleasures of life, around us,
Take a deep breath, open your greedy eyes,
And then you’ll see the light and beauty in life.
Happiness is simple. Effortless. He smiled.

Happiness…
Everyday of your life can be worth all the time,
A meaningful venture in the road of life, he said,
Celebrate the little things around and you shall
Find the true happiness in life.

Happiness…
Now, I found the true meaning behind the word,
Riches and houses, I realized, don’t bring me
A blissful smile. I seek and searched hard and
Stumbled upon the blessings in life.

Happiness…
I understood, Almighty God has vastly showered
The world with it, everywhere, to bless us all,
In things we see, everywhere. Eyes wide open,
I looked around myself, and there it is.

Happiness…
After the great lessons learnt, I start to go for it,
Not ready to wait a decade, but to open it, now,
A gift, treasured, it blooms bright in front of me,
A smile in the lips, and I am happy.

Happiness.
I find it, then, in little drops of things around,
I discarded my old, stupid ideals, and found
New meanings in life. Now, I can laugh
And scream and smile. I am happy.

Happiness…
The long list of things that make me feel the
Thrum of happiness. Play a musical concert
In my bones, and day-by-day, the feelings
Only grows. Big. I am happy.

For me, happiness is…

Every rainy day, dark sky, and the wet kisses
Placed upon my heated cheeks. Rain brings
A new music blaring in my tired heart, a smile.
A new flower blooming in my sad soul, joyful.
Rainy days, and a walk without the umbrella,
A dance in the rain, wild and passionate. Rain,
Is my best source of happiness.
Yes, I need rain to celebrate the purity of world.

For me happiness is…

A just born, like a velvet flower, pink, delicate
And soft, ever little child brings me the biggest smile,
A moment of delirious happiness. Carefully
Touching a finger on the little hand, and feeling the
Fragile fingers closing around my finger. Blessed
With a smile from the kids, a toothless grin, my world
Becomes one better place in that second.
Yes, I need kids to celebrate the innocence in life.

For me happiness is…

That best friend who loves without a boundary,
The moment spend, of laughter and old stories
That don’t matter. In the sad and bad days, one
Phone call is all it takes, to make me smile again.
Of promised togetherness, a bond without blood,
Still stronger than all, connected by heart, and soul,
My best friend, my best happiness.
Yes, I need my friend to celebrate every day.

For me happiness is…

Sitting in the dark, in the terrace, up high, with tender
Breeze dancing around, these twinkling beauties
Makes the dark night, romantic. Hand in hand,
In the cocoon of the lover’s embrace, just staring at
The sky decorated with lights, a festival in heaven,
Bright, the low hiss of the wind, a new melody, calm,
Stargazing makes me happy beyond words.
Yes, I need stars, and him, to celebrate love & life.

For me happiness is…

image

The smell of the books and holding it. Words comfort me,
Like a mom. When no one else’s there, my life can still
Be better, all I need is a book in my bedside. The magic
In the books, a world of new wonders, words swirled,
Of loud laughter, and blissful smile, some sad tears.
Cheering for the hero, cursing the villain, celebrating the love,
When world becomes difficult, books make it easy.
Yes, I need words and books to celebrate the magic.

For me happiness is…

The rich taste and scent of the chocolates. Dark,
Milk, chocolates are my harbor. There in my hard
Days, a comforter. In good days, to celebrate with me,
There’s something special in them, I long for, I yearn,
Don’t know why, or how, but chocolates are synonymous
To my smile. A sweet bite, a gentle kiss, one small lick,
Is all that I need to feel the burst of joy.
Yes, I need chocolates to celebrate the tricky fate.

For me happiness is…

image

The green, green grass with dew drops. Lying on it,
Feeling the smell of the Earth, and the cool dew
On the back, thinking about nothing in the world,
Feeling free as a kite, empty as an unfilled bottle,
Like a meditation, a serene hymn in the soul, pacifying,
A boneless feeling, burdens discarded, every moment
Alone with the Earth, brings me back, alive.
Yes, I need a time with nature to celebrate myself.

For me happiness is…

image

Playing in the rain with the paper boats, steering the
Boat, pretending to be a chief captain, braving the
Destructive waves, and heavy storms. The feeling of
Childish happiness cloaks around me, with these silly
Games. Puddles, colorful boats, engineered with passion,
Made in different designs, and playing with siblings, fighting
Each other’s boats, makes my heart sing in glee.
Yes, I need boats to celebrate childishness in life.

For me happiness is…

image

Bouquets of bold blossoms. Be it plain, or extraordinary,
Scented or unscented, flowers soothe the tension in
The bones. Calm the agitated nerves. Just a small touch,
A long stare, and the energy runs in my blood, again.
The vivid colors, butterflies atop, soft and stirring,
Flowers, the music of nature, sings a happy tune,
Just for me, and that cheers me up.
Yes, I need flowers, to celebrate the beauty of life.

For me happiness is…

Home. Going back home after a long journey.
Even if it is enjoyable, even if I find it precious, home
Is the place my heart always stays. The smell of warmth,
The aroma of mom’s cooking, floating around, the
Noises of my sister and brother, fighting, laughter,
Home is where my tired soul always finds rest, home
Is where I find my peace and happiness back.
Yes, I, mostly, need my home to celebrate the hard world.

Happiness, is simple, and always available. Once
I roughly trekked, hard and long to find, but then days
Proved, happiness is the easiest to find, when
Greed lies down, jealousy departs and goodness
Arrives. Happiness,  then, found a place in my heart,
And reflects, now, in every simple thing I enjoyed before.

I, now, enjoy even the ordinary day, the occasions
Worth remembering. A life, worth living. Always.
Celebrations are not just for the birthdays, and
Anniversaries. No, my life is worth celebrating,
All day long. With the wonders from the God.
Happiness, it is all around. I’ve opened my eyes
And found the wonders of world and life.
