Joy Comes Softly

Joy Comes Softly


Joy comes softly
In unexpected ways
Sound of babbling water
Smile on child's face


Joy comes softly
As hot breath of lover
Gently brushing against cheek
In hope love brings


Joy comes softly
As break of dawn across the horizon
Painting sky with newness
Grateful for another day


Joy comes softly
In the sound of baby's first cry
Delight of love's creation
Reflected in new eyes


Joy comes softly
In mother's caring touch
Wipes away the tears
As child launches out


Joy comes softly
In new phases of relationship
Transition together
Finding new ways

Joy comes softly
In tears of forgiveness
Freedom's release
Internally made right

Joy comes softly
As walk in tall grass
Spring's rebirth
Resurrection's renewal
