The Joy of Life

The Joy of Life

A Poem by penNhand

Dedicated to the hard working mothers!!!


The lessons you've learned

and those you will teach

Long days at the office

Fun days at the beach

The kids how they love you

Your husband adores

Sleep how you miss it

thanks to a husband that snores

Big family dinners

Hold hands and let's pray

To the morning breathe kisses

that just make your day

The candle light dinners

when the kids are not home

To the teenage daughter

that lives on the phone

To joys and pains

we know life can give

Enjoy all of those memories

Because you have one life to live

Ain't that the pearl of the little things we adore in live? Excellent expressed, with a fantastic touch!

Some of the small joys that we all take for granted each and every day. A very uplifting poem, full of a feeling of family and togetherness.
A smile crept across my face while i was reading this.. A sign of a truly good read!

There's a sweet song in these words, a tribute to simple pleasures, life as it should - could be - none of the modern-day artifice or whatever. We need to be reminded. Thank you.

I like this. It really is the simple things that matter most, yet often are easily missed by most of us. This serves as a gentle reminder to the reader to look upon the tiny blessings in life, and to not overlook them. Nicely done!

This is sweet. It reminds one to be thankful for the small things in life not to mention loved ones. :)
