Why Does Happiness Never Last?

Why can’t it be summer always?

Why is happiness vague and quickly fades away while sadness always stays?

Winters cruel sharp cold never fails to remind.

The warmth of the sun, pink cheeks and the feeling of happiness, or something like it.

Why can’t it be summer always?

Why can’t the sun's heat warm me up,

Burn me up,

Until I’m in flames and my heart bursts as a bomb would do. 

Why do tears never cease to run while smiles are the hardest to find.
