Happiness fades into a void. No more color, light, or life. Happiness changes like the seasons, falling with the autumn leaves, stripped bare like the winter trees, flourishing like with the spring flowers, and becoming bright like the summer sun in a summer sky. Smiles fade into the dusk as quickly as the sun comes up.
Joy holds like palm trees in a hurricane. Joy is there through the storm and in the serenity of a still water. Joy grows on the tree, staying ever green, from dawn until dusk, in the storm and in the calm through the endless cycle of seasons.
Happiness is temporary, Joy lasts forever.
