New reply from Susan Katz

<p>Thank you for sharing this warm and personal poem with me.  I very much appreciated reading it and feeling the emotion behind it.  I will consider it, along with the huge number of other poems submitted, for Featured Poem of the Month for June.  I am not sure yet, when I will make my decision as I have so many poems to read and assess.  Thank you again, Susan</p>

Happiness is indeed heartfelt! Monisha Batra

<p>Someone rightly said, happiness cannot be bought by money.. </p>
<p>It is eternal and heartfelt, whether the sky is hazy or sunny .</p>
<p> </p>
<p>He lived in a small temporary room with his family of five.. </p>
<p>He made flower garlands and sold them to neighbourhood shops all his life.. </p>
<p>What got that zeal in him to strive? </p>
<p>It was the sparkle in the eyes of the kids, which was the catalyst for this drive. </p>
<p> </p>
<p>Ensuring the children went to school and studied .. </p>
<p>Working long hours, tired only to see them content and not worried.. </p>
<p> </p>
<p>That priceless feeling of satisfaction. </p>
<p>That choked throat full of affection. </p>
<p>Never did he feel sad or pained by any circumstance.. </p>
<p>For him, each sunrise, gave him a hope and a beautiful new chance. </p>
<p>His positivity is an epitome of determination and resilience.. </p>
<p>His purity of smile at all times, despite all odds is a living proof of contentment. </p>
<p>Life is a beautiful journey, it should be explored without any resentment. </p>
