THE PERPETUAL SEARCH

Happiness happiness where art thou?
I seek you here and there.
Happiness happiness where  are you?
I seek you everywhere.

I looked for you in work and love;
I sought you, with such care.
In leisure I tried to capture you,
In days foul and fair.

Oh! Why do you elude me?
When will I get my share?
It’s you I seek from dawn to dusk;
It’s you I seek in my prayer .

My heart once more wants to beat;
In tune with laughter fair.
Once more it wants to dance away,
Without a speck of care.

Happiness, happiness, where art thou?
I seek you here and there.
Happiness, happiness, where  are you?
I seek you everywhere.

Oh! Happiness I wait for thee
Door to my heart lies bare
Come to me, fulfill my life,
And those that I love and care.
