There is wind where the rose was,
Cold rain where sweet grass was,
And clouds like sheep
Stream o'er the steep
Grey skies where the lark was.

Nought warm where your hand was,
Nought gold where your hair was,
But phantom, forlorn,
Beneath the thorn,
Your ghost where your face was.

Cold wind where your voice was,
Tears, tears where my heart was,
And ever with me,
Child, ever with me,
Silence where hope was.

    @mheredge My mom was overprotective. Back then, she was not even allow me to join school field trips. And playing with our neighbors' children would only be allowed if they come to our house. We are nearby highway so we were not allowed to go out beyond the gate unless accompanied by elders. There were many road accidents happened in the highway so we were barred.

    Today, my friends have made me happy. We went for a night out last night, and they have spent a while sending me the photos that were taken, which are lovely. Some of the scenery was excellent, so we got some great shots.

    @mahmoud44 I was made very happy by a friend who fixed a leak in my bathroom today. My laptop was behaving very strangely yesterday, so I hope it's not a virus.

    I like it when our friends help us out, because it makes us feel as though we are loved, and that we have people who would care for us. Today I was happy because a phoned a friend who I haven't spoken to for a number of years, and it was as if time hadn't passed at all, which was great.

    I'm happy when I'm organised and we'll prepared. Last night I tried to book my train ticket online but Trenitalia's website didn't want to play ball. Fortunately staying just five minutes away, I could easily go to the station to buy my ticket.

  • money hhhh
  • mheredgemheredge Teacher Here and therePosts: 28,063 mod
    Lack of money might make me unhappy, but I'm not sure having too much money would necessarily make me happy @yassine.
  • snack98snack98 Posts: 247 ✭✭✭
    I don't think so @yassine
  • mheredgemheredge Teacher Here and therePosts: 28,063 mod
    In fact money is usually the cause of a lot of misery, whether it's because you don't think that you have enough, or you have too much and everyone comes after you wanting you to help them.
