Happiness, Sweet Happiness: To Jamie (Jhamann) and Family by Manatita
Peace in happiness
“Happiness is love bubbling forth into the newness and fullness of life.”-Sri Chinmoy.
Come! Come! My Happiness-Friend,
Do resonate from deep within,
And radiate my sunrise- smile.
O Bird of Joy, O Friend of the Eternal.
Out of Your fiery baptism of celestial Love,
Do banish the pangs of my despondency,
And thrill my heart.
Beloved, I see You dancing
With the children in the Adventure Parks;
Hear You singing with the nightingales,
As myriad spring flowers blossom,
With the joy of Thy Delight.
Radiantly beaming in a valley of golden daffodils,
Who can equal Thy resplendence?
You’re a welcome solace to the bereaved;
Soothe the Spirit of the impoverished,
While bringing comfort to the forlorn life.
Entering the mind of confusion,
You replenish its sparkle of Light,
While in the heart of Your devotee,
You glow in splendour.
Sweet Happiness, You arise in adoration,
To the glorious dawn of nature’s rapture;
Immerse Thyself in the effulgence of yon twinkling stars.
You play in the garden of the childlike heart,
And send messages to the horizon.
How I wish to spread Your jewels on the wings of harmony,
And shake Your gem-drops to all sentient beings.
Beloved, cheerfulness is the seed of Thy grandeur.
As You sport and lustre in the eyes of the inspired,
Sorrows diminish, and all weariness evaporates.
O beauty of eons, O rhapsody of the perennial Light,
Come dine with me.
Cascade Your petal-fragrance-smile,
Into the Souls of all You encounter,
To grant us peace.
