Full of Joy Now

Full of joy now! Powerful, this unspeakable joy,

Sensations of longing and beauty running through my veins,

I, yearning the strength joy brings,

To you who knows these, I’m needing you.

 

When you read these lines I that was present have become absent,

Now it is you, powerful, with unspeakable joy, reading my poems, needing me,

Wondering how joyful you were when I was with you;

Think of me now as if I were there. (You can be certain that I am with you always.)

    At the moment sadness is the only way I know. You poem is wondrously hopeful but I just can not muster hopeful. I am very very happy for your joy, I only pray I find joy again one day. You see my joy in life was taken from me, so what's left is no joy in living

      IT MAY SEEM AS MADNESS : IT MAY SO SEEM STRANGE : BUT {HAPPINESS}* IS [NEVER TO BE FOUND BY SEARCHING* nor WAITING* FOR SUCH]* ! [HAPPINESS APPEARS]* : [UNEXPECTEDLY SO]* & [VANISHES UPON ITS OWN WHIM]* ! [WHEN HOPE CEASES* - SO DOSE HOPELESSNESS]*! HAPPINESS (>IS<) - UPON THE DIRE (SEARCH)* FOR IT ! [HAPPINESS (REMEMBERED)* - IS NOT QUITE HAPPINESS]*! .........

      Joy is powerful. My 25 year old daughter exudes it. She is truly amazing. I enjoyed this one.

      Mother T. also said, "One filled with joy, preaches, without preaching." Your sense of joy becomes shared with all who read your poems. I am sure you have reached many hearts with this one. - Phil A.

        Thank you Phil. I'm trying another approach to writing poems. This is an adaptation to a Walt Whitman poem. I want to bless others, of course, through writing poems of significance.

        Joy is whole in itself. First two lines are very impactful. Enjoyed reading very much. The second stanza sounds very unique and beautiful as to how you portrayed the future feelings in the present and bringing them again into the future.
