Life is joy and joy’s in life,
but joy’s a waiting game.
and without joy there is no life,
they mix, they interchange.
learn to love and love to learn
of all the eye can see.
And only then will you go to bed
and wake up ready to be.
Love the little things in life,
like that little aloe plant,
that crazy cuddly kitten
or that paisley pair of pants.
Appreciate minute details,
find symbols in a story,
or pet the pretty petals
of a velvet morning glory.
When you go to sleep and say “goodnight”
and love the way it sounds
when it echoes through your bedroom
then you know true joy was found.
I find this joy and wake up ready
to face the average day
because I know the joys of life are waiting
to greet me on the way.
