Day 44 of #100HappyDays

Sometimes it feels great when you come across a poem that you studied in school.

One of my favourite poems –The Road Not Taken by Robert Frost.

Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler, long I stood
And looked down one as far as I could
To where it bent in the undergrowth;

Then took the other, as just as fair,
And having perhaps the better claim
Because it was grassy and wanted wear,
Though as for that the passing there
Had worn them really about the same,

And both that morning equally lay
In leaves no step had trodden black.
Oh, I kept the first for another day!
Yet knowing how way leads on to way
I doubted if I should ever come back.

I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I,
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.

Day 5 of #100HappyDays

“Wear a smile on your face
Put a spring in your step,
Be happy in your heart and sing
And you’ll be the happiest person
That you can ever be!”

These lines are from the poem written by my favorite person. Thanks for being a part of my blog. Feeling gratitude!

Read the complete poem here.

Finding happiness…

I started on a quest you see
To find happiness in the things I see

What makes me happy and
Feel cheerful?
What triggers the bliss in me?

The smile of a child
After a frown
A melanoid night ending
At the crack of dawn

A clique of carnations
Nodding at spring
Dainty little butterflies
Dancing in the wind

Reaping the rewards
After relentless striving
Discerning that, the true joy
Is in giving

Keeping your composure
In trying situations
When your actions begin to
Speak louder than your words

Tears of joy when cradling
Your new born baby
The moment when she finally
Calls you her ‘mommy’

The list goes on
Seems never ending
A hundred reasons to be happy
And I’m still counting…

Happiness is all around you
Just waiting to be discovered
But it lives in your heart
Forever and ever and ever

Wear a smile on your face
Put a spring in your step,
Be happy in your heart and sing
And you’ll be the happiest person
That you can ever be!
