Looking for Joy (and finding it)

PAD Challenge day 6: today’s Two-for-Tuesday prompt:
  • Write a lost poem. Or…
  • Write a found poem.

Frames of mind can soon find reasons to be filled with fear and doubt
Life is always on the ready with so much to fret about
We would be hard-pressed for laughter flowing from our heart of hearts
Without Hope to cheer us onward through life’s rough-and-humbling parts

Sometimes we lose sight of why we were put here, love’s care to bear
The Unknown drops not a hint of what it holds twixt Here and There
But as we press up and onward on the verge of Come-what-may
We will find full joy is always just a thank-you prayer away
