MY JOY IS IN YOU


May be all that I see in this life is a mere story,
What if I decided to famish it with a great worry?
Even to this, only my joy in you could bring the glory.

Standing at the gates of the unknown ready to be laid,
Nothing passed by me without any wages paid.
And all that could be written of me was already said.

Though I saw in my minds eye a shining light,
Yet still could not see through the passing night.
If only my joy will be seen then it will be to a glorious sight.

Where I failed to acknowledge your presence,
My world was devastation to the essence.
Just to find joy in you, I had to purge my conscience.

Though a light shined within through the word,
Still tried to be accepted by men into their world.
To an endless joy in you, my life had to be sold.

With a life so divine as the Most High,
Men tried to possess what was unseen with a sigh.
To have a perfect joy in you, my soul had to thigh.

To the end of days my love for you had no boundary.
Just moments of the time left was in sundry.
But in all, my joy was complete when I found your jury.

Poem of the Day

poet Robert William Service

Just Home and Love! the words are small
Four little letters unto each;
And yet you will not find in all
The wide and gracious range of speech
Two more so tenderly complete:
