Theme: Happiness

Happiness, Where Are You?

Happiness, where are you?
Where are your bright-lit days
your flowery ways
and all the joys of you?

Jewelled roads, they said
were theirs,
love, success, contentment -
all, they said, were theirs.

To me you gave none
and even gave, now taken,
how strange that you should love
but me, the whole world!

negative thinking.And hand over yourself in shelter of God.He is a "Ramban Oshdhi" of all worldly diseases.Peace ,prosperity & happiness will come
spontaneously to you.Thank you for good expression.Please be happy and
