Happiness

 

fabric wears out
wealth fades away
health is fleeting
friends sometimes fickle
fame as with fortune
is temporary at best
 
behind every joy
lies the shadow of fear
they will let down
 
happiness is not found
on earth’s frail foundations
rests on knowing all is well
no matter what transpires
not on what we hold
but on Who holds us
