The Poet’s Corner – “Rejoice”

By Guest Author: John Yurgens



Rejoice with me!

I am alive!

I have always appreciated life.

Since my stroke and brush with death.

I must admit, life is so much sweeter now.

These days, I have time, and I take it, to watch the sunrise and listen to the birds sing as the day begins

Rejoice with me.  I am alive!  I am happy! And I am having fun!

I try to make a difference every day.

I am meeting people and forging new friendships

Hard work and determination, okay stubbornness, brought me to here and now.

Will you rejoice with me?

I am alive and I love the life I’m living (most of it anyway)

God has given a second Chance at life.

I thank her daily.

Rejoice with me I am alive.
