Tears of Joy


Because
I want
To write.

I want to feel
The soft-tipped pen
Glide across
The crisp, clean sheet of new paper
Behold the fine, curving black letters
Let them seep through me,
Engulf me
To become one of their own.

I want to dream of
Impossible fantasies
Intoxicate myself
With passionate words,
Indulge in the sea of knowledge
And come to a quiet
And peaceful
Contentment.

Because
When I wake
I want to feel my wet cheeks
And realize
That all this time
I have been crying
Not tears of sadness
But tears of joy

poet Henry David Thoreau

Whate'er we leave to God, God does,
And blesses us;
The work we choose should be our own,
God leaves alone.
