Happiness used to live just across the road,

sometimes I would meet her around the corner,

she would often drop in unannounced

accompanied by smiles and giggles

caught up in this humdrum yet hectic life

I started overlooking her

not purposely but …

gradually she becameelusive

I hardly ever see her now

but yesterday when I could no longer take

life’s lame jokes

Iparteneredwithzestto go in search of her

came back tired and empty handed

only to find her lounging

in the armchair waiting for me.
