TO MY SECOND BEST
Sample Poem

Joy

As a rainbow covers a rain-damped sky
For all the world to see—
So your friendship circles my lonely heart
And brings a smile to me.

As the dewdrops moisten the morning grass
And make the world look new—
So a joy has entered my lonely life,
The joy of knowing you.

As a sunrise colors an early sky
To welcome a waking day—
So your caring has filled my empty soul,
A feeling I hope will stay.

As the moon reflects the hidden sun
And it lights the earth below—
So your friendship lights my lonely life
With a very special glow.

As the sunshine sends its warming rays
To everything that lives—
So knowing you has warmed my heart…
What a joy your friendship gives.
