There is a joy
I try to live by
and that I endeavor to share
with every soul
I have been blessed to encounter;
To try to be at least
that one human being
to understand the reasons
for the absence of joy
in the life of another;
To shine some gladness
over sadness
so it can see its way
out of the deep.
For as anyone who has
ever known darkness understands,
it takes only
a speck of light
to show the way.
What light I have,
I give gladly.
But sadly,
I have found
it cannot pierce
the darkness
of closed eyes.
