A Joy In Existence - Poem by Michael Hopkins


You are given words

That ring true

That sing and dance


Touch to the very heart of one's existence

One's essence as a human being

These words come as a gift

To be given

To all who will receive them

So, that they too

Can sing and dance


Touch to their very hearts

Bringing a calmness

Bringing a certainty

Bringing with them

A joy in existence


Delight in this gift

Hear the sweet music

That will move you

To sing

To dance

To open your hearts

To a joy in existence
