Coastal benches tell a tale of loves long since past marriages of yesteryear did not fail they were surely built to last each one you sit on or peruse fill up your heart with hope love was something you didn't refuse that's how they learned to cope the joining of hands in matrimony was something to adore to relish in your company He'd asked for nothing more surely when they gave their vows their hearts were to be as one missing pieces broken now long gone the spirit of fun yet here I sit, upon this bench lost in thought and sorrow I think of heroes in a trench lost soldiers of tomorrow war time sadness for those not to return a family becomes disjointed hearts ache until they burn no longer reunited
Love is worth fighting for, dying for and I miss it dearly. Long journeys aren't always fun are they?
Joy in your life Does not follow wealth Or fame Or even ambition
Joy in your life Follows purpose and meaning Friends and family Incremental progress
When you feel disconnected From Joy in your life Reach out to another And connect again
Connect with laughter Connect with play Connect with gratitude Connect with focus Connect with service Connect with forgiveness
These will light the fire For joy in your life And joy will remain Your constant companion
