My mom wrote this as an undergrad...... She used to write in a journal faithfully, every night. One night this is what came out and she chose to never change a word. This poem means a lot to her as exactly one week later her grandmother passed away. Mom graduated in December that same year.


This Is a Happy Time

This is a happy time!
How can anyone see,
All that is going on within me?
How can anyone feel,
The wounds on my heel?
How can anyone smell,
The sweet scent around the dell?
What a happy time this is! To be so
Close to something so far away!

My goals are within my reach.
Let's hope I do not breach,
The promise I made to myself so long ago,
To not leave anything fallow,
But to always do God's will,
No matter what the bill.
The devil cannot destroy,
'cause I simply will not employ.
His efforts are lost,
So he may as well pay the cost.
What a happy time this is! So close and yet so far away!

A dream is on it's way,
So never begin to sway!
Stand firm on the rock,
And you shall unlock,
The door to Heaven.
Then the rewards will come seven-
Fold. Don't get discouraged,
But always be encouraged.
For the future is so bright,
And completely within sight.
Oh, what a happy time this is!
So close again, but still so far away!

Good luck to you, my friend,
And may God always send,
The blessings you deserve!
He will never be reserved,
When you need some help.
With this you can never melt.
Stand firm in the faith,
And take a steady gait,
So that the tare,
Can never ensnare,
Your heart from the Lord.

Take up the sword,
And head toward,
The goal that lies beyond the hill.
It is shining still,
So take your fill,
And do your part,
So that you may be glad at heart.
What a happy time, so close and yet so far!
