Happiest Days

By Edward H. Donnelly

I said to the little children,
"You are living your happiest days,"
And their bright eyes opened wider In innocent amaze.
For their happiness was so perfect,
They did not know it then;
"Oh, no," they said, "there'll be happier days
When we are women and men."

I said to the youth and maiden,
"You are living your happiest days,"
And into their sparkling eyes there crept
A dreamy, far-off gaze;
And their hands sought one another,
And their cheeks flushed rosy red;
" Oh, no," they said, " there'll be happier days
For us when we are wed."

I said to the man and woman,
"You are living your happiest days,"
As they laughingly watched together
Their baby's cunning ways.
"These days are days of labor.
They can hardly be our best;
There'll be happier days when the children are grown,
And we have earned our rest."

I said to the aged couple,
"You are living your happiest days,"
Your children do you honor,
You have won success and praise.
" With a peaceful look they answered,
"God is good to us, that's true: But we think there are happier days for us
In the life we're going to."

The internet has once again been shaken up with the sight of two of the most iconic ’90s pop stars living their best lives. Thanks to the #ThrowbackThursday Instagram hashtag, Mariah Carey has shared with her 6.9 million followers a nostalgic throwback photo of herself and Britney Spears all decked out in ’90s gear.

Apparently the picture was taken the very first the two met in 1999, and it’s all the #TBT you”ll ever need in life.  It’s common knowledge that Mariah and Britney have incredible respect for each other, especially since Britney is one of the very few stars that Mariah claims to remember meeting (remember the whole thing about her claiming to have never met Jennifer Lopez?)

She captioned the picture with ‘We need a new picture, Brit”.  And as much as we’re already over the moon with this picture, we certainly wouldn’t object to some sort of duet.
