Songs of Joy by David Holloway

posted in: Poetry 2012 | 0


I have songs of joy as our..
Faith is stirred, but not shaken
I take a leap into tomorrow
My tired back, is not broken
And I don’t regret life’s sorrow
I’m happy that I have peace
I can ponder, and chase dreams
I have my smile; it’s a release
I see tranquility in a stream,
I can climb a frozen mountain 
And soar higher than a bird,
Joy is my youthful fountain
And true love is preferred
I have inspiration, I believe,
My God turns water into wine 
Passion is the work, I conceive
I have the word of the divine
I can rest and not despair
I know with glee, there is hope,
And with every day I say a prayer
And with them I can cope,
I have pride in my appearance
I have so much more to learn!
Friends are life’s deliverance,
And I greet them at each turn,
David Holloway (c) 2013
