When If Meets Must

When If Meets Must


If we can fight together, we must strive together

If we can play together, we must pray together 

If we can plan together, we must stand together 

If we can cry together, we must try together 

We must strive together, if we can fight together 

We must pray together, if we can play together 

We must stand together, if we can plan together 

We must try together, if we can cry together 

The future of man is built on a plan 

Of working together whenever we can

So “if” must stand so tall 

And “must” alone, cannot fall 

For together, forever we bring 

The best, the good of it all.

currency note of life …..happiness

Good and God’s morning ……

this morning bringing milk by paying Indian currency notes

thought with these what we buy in time is our needs and wants

which

may bring us a joy in time which with the passage of time fades

but

we are aware of a timeless happiness

which we can buy with the currency note of life ……

taken out

from

the pocket of  NOW……

Happiness

by Raymond Carver

So early it’s still almost dark out.
I’m near the window with coffee,
and the usual early morning stuff
that passes for thought.

When I see the boy and his friend
walking up the road
to deliver the newspaper.

They wear caps and sweaters,
and one boy has a bag over his shoulder.
They are so happy
they aren’t saying anything, these boys.

I think if they could, they would take
each other’s arm.
It’s early in the morning,
and they are doing this thing together.

They come on, slowly.
The sky is taking on light,
though the moon still hangs pale over the water.

Such beauty that for a minute
death and ambition, even love,
doesn’t enter into this.

Happiness. It comes on
unexpectedly. And goes beyond, really,
any early morning talk about it.

glow of happiness

Grace the world with your glow of happiness

Do not chase happiness 
Search within you 
There are lot many things 
Inside you 
Which have reasons 
To make you happy 
You pursuit or search for happiness outside 

Does not take you anywhere 
As what seemingly has a stock of happiness 
Once you reach or achieve it
You realize that happiness 
Lies further ahead somewhere
And you hunt for happiness 
Takes a new turn 

And this goes on and on 
Only to make you understand 
That you are back in square one
Devoid of happiness, your original search 
Happiness, thus, cannot be anywhere else 
But within you 

Do not be on a stealthy stalk for happiness 
Simply because others do so 
Search within and discover 
The happiness in you 

Do not be on a race for happiness 
But grace the world 
With the glow of 
Happiness within you

God of happiness

Inside my happiness, addiction never happened
Inside my happiness, there are no sorrows
And no tears, so the hurt doesn’t exist
Inside my happiness, there is god
And he planned all this for me

Inside my happiness, there is nothing
But happiness for me
