Joy of Life

Joy of Life

I sit and watch with  delight
as the swallows swoop and loop
knowing now that spring is here

Soft breezes from the lake
filter through my senses
as I awaken so does the earth

The promise of spring a reality
as buds blossom into life
so does my soul re-awake

Hope now returns full throttle
flooding me with joyful exaltation
delighted I turn to the sun

letting in its golden rays
embracing that healing warmth
welcoming the world back in

Letting the memories of winter
fade away into the distant past
embracing the promise of rebirth
