My Elixir

A song in the silent woods
A drop of the morning dew
A baby in the arms of a mother
A leaf that the wind blew
Take everything but these away
Let my elixir of life stay

A word with the one I love
A change of heart I brought
A fruit from the seed I sowed
A line from the poetry I wrote
Take everything but these away
Let my elixir of life stay

A balloon in the hand of a child
A hope in the rising sun
A smile that I can bring to a face
A tear of joy in the eyes of someone
Take everything but these away
Let my elixir of life stay

Happiness is a state of mind
Not found, nor stored
A thought so powerful
Not pursued, nor borrowed
It keeps finding me
When I choose to let it be
You can take everything but this away
My elixir of life will stay

@Everyone:
I am learning to ''explain variability with the minimum no. of factors'' :) Sagar would understand what I mean. Thank you for loving and appreciating the poem so much. Really came straight from the heart.
