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.)

    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.
