I Will Sing To You of Happy Days

Happy days ahead, can we dare think of that? / countryliving.com

 

 

I will sing to you of happy days

grasses, thick and green

rivers are for real

the sky’s blue in the morning

and star-lit in the evening.

 

I will sing to you of happy days

mountains full of trees

flowers abound, have in them bees

birds chirping loud, unfazed

savor the breeze, an afternoon of peace.

 

I will sing to you of happy days

when words hold precious meaning

even as they’re not spoken

music, carried forth by the wind

people truly have time to listen.

 

I will sing to you of happy days

though they be long and winding

there’s time to pass by, roads meandering

no harm, I suppose, with hands aholding

little thoughts given, to time afleeting.

 

I will sing to you of happy days

walking, roaming, seeing

jumping, playing, listening

holding, examining, touching

feeling, caring, believing.

I will sing to you of happy days.

* This was written on February 8, 2012 for my sibling. I think I once tried giving a copy of the poem to the kin, can’t remember if it was the giver or the receiver who, at that moment, hesitated. Am unsure if I can muster another attempt. So, am putting a copy here, in case I miss another chance. Some guts I have, huh? Ahaha, I used to do better. ^^

To believe again, in a world that promises little … 🙂
