A Moment Of Happiness: A Poem by Vasudha Pansare

A moment of happiness can provide,
A lifetime of solace,
Just as a cool drizzle can give
On a hot summer day, some reprieve.
A moment of happiness is enough,
To erase the dark cloud of sorrow,
A moment of joy will make us tough,
To face a turbulent tomorrow.
When life becomes  troublesome and painful,
Remember your moments of happiness,
They will make you cheerful,
And chase away shadows of darkness.
Moments of happiness are precious,
Because grief is a constant companion,
Just as the shade of a single tree,
Is invaluable on a hot afternoon.
There will be joy, there will be pain,
One cannot exist without the other,
Learn from each experience,
Every moment will make you stronger.
