Wish you a joyful International Happiness Day

Listen to the sea waves chant 

Listen to the nightly song of humanity’s thoughts

Listen to how people are resting after a busy day, 

Look at how enchanted they are by the sunset

Wonderful gift from the setting sun. 

Now breathe the air brought by the wind carrying

Perfume of flowers, all they want is some humility.

If you want you can yell and shout out to the world

How strong is your wish to give back, 

If you want you can sing, because 

Somewhere near you joy is hiding, sing 

Because you can do it, because you want to, 

You can play, you can scream, you can take back your smile.

You know they lied, told you joy’s dead and vanquished, 

It is a lie, because joy’s alive, within you. 

So even if its just a moment, I beg you to feel it, 

Hold tight and unto it, don’t let it die, 

Even if deep in worries and chaos, let it be heard, 

Because you need joy as much as I do. 

it is late, but please stay with me a bit longer, 

Let us enjoy this breeze we discovered tonight, 

Let it gives us strength before tomorrow comes

When we return among those who suffer and hope, 

But we will know that somewhere hidden

Joy exists, because you want it, because you can.
