Joy Beyond Compare
~Marge Tindal~

May this day find you
happy and serene.
No two-ways about it,
nothing inbetween.

Just a little joy,
just one simple smile.
Joy beyond compare
to stay with you a while.

If the joy you find
is more than enough for you,
share some with a friend,
so they will have some too.

A boy, a girl
it matters not you see,
just spread that joy around,
even send some to me.

I'll treasure it just knowing
that it came from you.
I'll send it on to a friend
who may be feeling blue.

The next thing you know
you'll find it coming back,
just at the moment
when some joy you may lack.

That's the joy
of joy shared
it never has an end.
Take the joy I share with you
and share it with a friend.

Joy to you, Joy to me
Joy to all at passions
Joy to make everyone's day

Joy to Marge for this post
and making everyone smile
Marge knows how to put a
smile right on your
dial

I love the message of this one, Marge!

It's something we forget to do, even if we are happy, we don't always share it, or we find reasons to push it aside.  I must worry about this, or I must concentrate on that.

Where are our sense of priorities as adults, I wonder?

Ever notice when children are stressed or worried, they worry only in small chunks at a time, then they set it aside and go play a game???

That's what this poem makes me think of...

You asked me to return this joy that you just have sended out to me
Well dearest Marge what can I say "I will do so certainly"
Of joy and happiness I have endlessly
Because you gave me lots and I thank thee
Your poem is beautiful as they all are
Hugs you dearly

 The ability to describe life with words is similar to painting a picture; both can be powerful tools.

Oh, Corinne~
I like your response.
Yes, how more like children
we need to become.  
Thank you.

Helmut~
I'm glad you sent it back to me.
It's joy for the sake of joy.
Now also send it round the block
for someone else to enjoy.

I love you, Helmut Becker.
