Have-Blessed-Day

Howdy folks!

This poem is "hot off the press". lol Translated means, I just wrote it. What prompted this? 

I was editing my pages when I noticed the titles and the links to, were not in sync. In other words the titles on the pages were not matching with what was appearing as the title in the links. Since this isn't something I like, I had to create new pages where the page titles and the links to, match.

In this process I noticed one of the pages came up in its corresponding link with: "have-blessed-day", which are a few words I like to close something I've written with. Then it occurred to me, these words might make a good title for a poem and the next instant, thoughts began flooding in. As many poets will agree, when the words and lines start coming, it's best to get them down. Otherwise, the thoughts can be lost... forever. As with many spontaneous poems, this one took me about twenty minutes to write. 

   

I wish for you a blessed day right from the start,
With joy and Love abundantly felt within your heart.
But if you are feeling somewhat sad and blue,
Then may these words bring some hope just for you.

It's difficult to dismiss the troubles on our mind,
Such can steal our joy, be to our heart unkind.
Yesterdays can spill over into the new of today,
Especially fears and worries that can get in our way.

Life can surely beat us down into a deep ravine,
With walls so steep our blessings can't then be seen
And when we're separated from reasons to be grateful,
This can a heart alter to bitterness, to be hateful.

If we practice every day, our blessings, we rehearse, 
Life's tribulations can't, our state of mind, reverse.
When we feel ourselves struggling with holding onto hope,
Our blessings we are grateful for, supplies our life rope.

All those deep ravines with quicksand at their base,
Waiting to suck us in, into a dark, hopeless place,
Where our hope and happiness can then be devoured,
Unless with gratitude for blessings we are empowered.

I wish for you a day full of blessings to be grateful for,
And if trouble comes a knocking, to pound down your door,
You'll have the power within you, in your hands and in your heart,
If with gratitude you are, allowing it to play its key role and part.

Have a Blessed Day; count your blessings, every one,
As your day begins, throughout, and when your day is done.
You'll always be well armed then against every darker force
Attempting to steal your hope away and your peaceful course.

💗 Have a blessed day! 💗
