If you can see Joy in the rising Sun

Then you will know the Glories of the day has just begun

When the darkness is folded up and put away

Until it's unfurled again upon us at the end of day



If you can see the Joy in a baby's eyes

When something new he/she spies

It can fill your heart with pure delight

To be a witness to the sight



Joy is all around

Even when the silence is profound

Where we experience Joy without a sound

It's the feeling in your heart where love and joy can be found



If you see Joy in the setting Sun

And you can feel the Peace that nighttime has begun

If you can see Joy in these little things

Then one day you will know the joy(s) that heaven brings


Like a Bridge Over Troubled Waters

Joy!

Do you know the simple joy of Peace?

See results

      Au fait, my dear friend thank you for the comment, compliment and for sharing. Yes it does make the heart feel good, a sweet smile from any baby, so many bring Joy.

      I worked outside cutting grass so it would rain; so I can cut grass; so it will rain; so I can cut grass.

      Sometimes I feel like God is saying "oh, you like to cut grass, I will give you rain to make it grow so you can cut more."

      Blessings and hugs to you also.

      Visiting this exceptional poem again and sharing it so that people will read and be reminded that joy in life comes mostly in the simple things that happen unexpectedly. A sweet smile from your baby grandchild, a lovely song from a talented grandson, an unexpected bloom in the garden, etc.

      Hope you're having a good day. Tomorrow is to be 93 F. Blessings and hugs for you dear friend.

      That is a great video and song to end with after your poem about joy. You are correct in saying that often it is the little things that mean most. A kind word, encouraging look, a hug, a smile...all can work wonders to bring joy into our lives.

      Beautifully awesome words as usual. Always loved the Simon and Garfunkel song, too. The greatest joy will be when He returns, not only because we will be with Him, but to see the end of pain and suffering for all.

      Voted up, BAI, pinned to AH, and shared.

      Ah, such a beautiful poem and, yes, there is so much to take in and bring us an overabundance of joy that He has placed before our very eyes indeed! No matter our circumstances, if we are His children, then there should be joy in our hearts just for that fact alone.

      Up and more, pinning, tweeting

      God bless you. In His Love, Faith Reaper
