A poem for #Whatmakesyouhappy competition.
...because I'm happy, clap along if you feel like a room without a roof....

Happiness has no memory -
you just can't find it!
I checked it yesterday and years ago.
The slightest sorrow leaves a scar behind it.
But happiness, which has no memory -
Oh, no! 
It's like the air - we know it's there, and breathe it;
It's natural, like sunshine, and like air;
And that is why its memory dies with it,
And we for troubles never are prepared.
When you have happiness
no words are needed-
It's like your heart-its place is in your breast;
Until it's pierced by pain, you never heed it,
You think you'll livefor centuries at least.
You wonder at my smiles?
No tears of anguish?
My lack of haste to bid this world farewell?
There is no pain on earth I cannot vanquish-
And as for insults, they can go to hell.
Give up my happiness which has no memory?
No, never!
We are systole and diastole,
Two in one. 
No insults or misfortunes can dissever
My happiness and me - it simply can't be done.
