The first time we met
Scolded by my father, I was
My eyes were red and wet
And my heart, afraid of your claws

The second time you greeted me
I tried hard to neglect you
My teacher lashed at me in fury
The ruler she hit me with, split in two

The third time we bumped into
My mother slapped me on my cheek
I had nowhere else to go to
And finally, with you, I started to speak

Time flew like a breeze
Sometimes you would go on a vacation
Yet you never tend to cease
With you, happiness can never come into action

I saw everyone trying to break free
From your somber clutches
Nobody realized you were silently
By their side, in times of gloominess

Got together for a myriad times now
I wonder when will be that woeless tomorrow,
Even though you accompanied me when my life was low,
Will I ever get rid of you, sorrow?

Ah yes, but sometimes we can gauge our happiness from the depths of our sorrow. Beautifully written sentiment Sumit!
