Ah ! We wait for it all along
Looking for a proper reason
Something huge to come along
A big gift…a festive occasion

Smile when you catch a running bus
Lying in your nani’s lap
Enjoy the childishness of ice-creams
Splashing water from the tap

Your favourite song playing loudly
Jumping in puddles on a rainy day
The warm filter coffee in hand
Hands smeared with wet clay

If you wait for happiness…you’ll keep waiting
It comes in small packages everyday
Accept them and hug them hard
Life’s too short to let our hair turn gray ….
