Surprised by Joy

Surprised by Joy (Illustration) Poetry Tragedies and Triumphs Ethics

 

Mutual friends
Thought
You and I should
Meet
We'd be a team
They said

We were
Surprised by love.


I was a
Child
Unskilled in
Worldly ways
I would achieve
You said

I was
Surprised by strength.


My greatest
Wish
For children just
Like us
Was not to be
God said

We were
Surprised by pain.


Financial loss
Set back
Our hopes and plans
Success
Is not for us
We said

We were
Surprised by faith.


We now are
One
Each other's closest
Friend
We have the best
We say

We've been
Surprised by joy.
