You Cannot Always Be Happy

You cannot always be happy life does not work in this way
And not every day for you can be a good day
I recall the words of a wise aging female sage as a boy
She said if you have not known sadness you cannot appreciate joy
Back then i was far too young for to realize
That she was a person who was very wise
One does have to feel for the unhappy millionaire
And their sort nowadays are no longer rare
That their money a worry to them does seem a sad thing
Any happiness to them it has failed to bring
For our happier moments we ought to feel glad
And to appreciate happiness one must know how it is to feel sad
This is what the wise woman said to me when i was too young to know
That they are lucky indeed those with the inner glow.
