HAAPPINESS AND LOVE (A Sonnet)
My heart is heavy and why should that be?
For Jesus our savior has set me free.
I am happy and as free as free can be.
But the world in despair is what troubles me.
I pray for each one that comes to my mind,
For friends , for loved ones, for the halt and the blind.
But all around there is misery and stress;
And people are looking for happiness .
But there is a secret I learned long ago,
Deep and profound that each of us should know.
Happiness cannot be found by search.,
It’s elusive and not even found in the church.
Love and happiness are not yours to stay,
You only have them by giving them away.
( “Love isn’t love ‘til you give it away.”)
