Lost Joy Recovered 

by Jazz3 

I've found my lost joy 

Tangled up in Christmas lights and 

Well-remembered ornaments that always make me smile 

Joy hidden in pain 

Surrounded by Tragedy 

Struggling to feel good 

In a World turned upside down 

There are still strangers willing to help others 

Free of Suspicion and Fear 

And like, Blanche Dubois, I've found a sweet comfort 

In depending on there Kindness 

I've found my lost Joy 

Looking at holiday shoppers 

And in the smile of a man carrying tinsel 

In houses lit up for the holiday season 

In the spirit of religious ceremony 

In the closeness of family 

I've happily discovered 

It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year
