Happiness knocked upon my door,
           I chose to let it in.
Although it stayed for a little while,
           I knew it’d leave again.

It talked and laughed and danced and joked
           And promised me the moon.
But with the blink of my brown eyes,
            It disappeared too soon.

It fled the scene one summer night
           And left me in despair.
I walked and cried and searched the town
            But happiness wasn’t there.

I wait for it to come again.
           I peek into the night.
My waiting heart will be in vain,
          Happiness,  has lost sight.
