Where is joy?


Where is Joy, Mama?
She is dancing in the wind.
She is sparkling in the sunshine.
She is laughing in your friend.
She is playing in your smile and
Splashing on the shore.
She is singing with the birds and
Opening up a door.
And on the grayer days she is 
napping quietly 
under blankets of thick clouds, or beneath an old oak tree. 
Sometimes it will be harder to hear her tinkling voice. 
When the brambles and the mud make it harder to rejoice.
When that happens child,
Remember from the start,
Joy is always with you,
Because Joy lives in your heart.
