March 1983


Does the Sun Shine Only...


Does the sun shine only

To be obscured by clouds?

Does a laugh exist

Only to become a tear?

Why do some feel saddest

When joy should be foremost?

       Does God temper our joy with pain

       Or does He lessen our pain with joy


Why does one smile

When tears fill the eyes

Is it of pride

Or the joy of finer moments recalled

While the shadow falls


Why do tears flow freely

When smiles are all about

And not a clouds in the sky

Can frail human senses

Not bear the bliss?


Each New Day A Miracle
