How happy I am,

in the blue lagoon,
sleeping in the space,
walking on the moon,
nothing to cry for,
nothing to fear,
nothing to worry about,
no dirt, no smear,
it’s been this way,
since the day I died,
I haven’t laughed,
I haven’t cried,
I wish I could,
stay some more time,
with my kin and folks,
in the life-time,
to laugh to cry,
in the spirit lane,
to smell the wind,
to feel the rain,
I miss that life,
love so rife,
now here I am,
in my Afterlife!!!

Well, the reason for this post to appear is the dilemma of life. When you be in it, you always feel missing something. When you are out of it, you miss it! isn't that life! Wasn't really sure which one I would be happy in! I guess this should answer your question. :)
