My heart just over flows sometimes
feeling joy and laughter in my heart

I never thought I could feel such joy
that is so wholesome and pure

I just want to bask in this feeling
that wraps me in its embrace

Like a little child, trusting and expectant
waiting and wanting, yet unsure of, anticipated joy

After years of poverty and pain
years of famine from love

I pray Lord, that this is only the beginning
of a new springtime in my life
