Of All the Joys Under the Sun

Of All the Joys Under the Sun

 

Of all the joys under the sun

watching trees wave to me in the morning

or listening to the birds sing

their version of “close to you”

are my inspiration.

 

Of all the joys under the sun

the most joyous are

having a conversation with any of

my grand-kids.

Or getting a bear hug from a loved one.

 

Of all the joys under the sun

listening to Nessum Dorma by Pavorroti,

makes my day.

Finding the fluffiest cloud in the sky

or discovering my lilies have bloomed

inspire me every time.

 

Of all the joys under the sun

the greatest joy is

knowing my children, grandchildren,

and other loved ones are happy.

-Melba Christie
