A long-awaited truth (A poem)

Back to the epistles again, after a short break.

You are happy now, I cannot deny
That’s a truth for which you waited long
You need no more to wonder why

For your heart now sings a brand new song
writ of joy, unbridled and free
That’s a truth for which you waited long

Worry not, my dear, what it is to me
Embrace this moment in which you live
writ of joy, unbridled and free

Embrace all your happiness would give
that all your happiness you may receive
Embrace this moment in which you live

For it is love in which you must believe
if love is to have a fighting chance
that all your happiness you may receive

In love and happiness lives the dance
You are happy now, you cannot deny
If love is to have a fighting chance
you need no more to wonder why
