The Hard-earned Happiness

The harmonious companionship is of no easy access
Especially after many betrayals I’ve experienced as a witness

From the uneasy feeling my tough disguises derive
By whom the romantic elements are stolen from my life?

Nobody can discard all world affairs just for the sake of love
Being realistic is of both benefit and also harm

Loneliness although damned will be overcome
Free from worry and constraint we finally become

Get down to something when you are happy
And take a good rest when you feel sleepy

Ignore others’ opinion and make your own decision
It’s childish to be inspired by emotion

A film together with a cup of wine
I’ll relax myself on sofa at weekend’s night

Love is easy to start but rather hard to last
’cause everybody may get their temper lost

We are not young anymore
and prefer a quiet lifestyle therefore

Happiness is not easy to reap at all
That’s also why it attracts us overall

Happiness Made Not Found long poem

She dusts her memories with thoughts and prayers for those she left behind. Longing for them like ebb and tide. She spins looms of love laden with smiles and hope And somersaults days into nights tossing her old life into
