Ode to Joy

NEVER HAVING TO RESIST LOVE

TAKING MY OWN SWEET TIME

WANDERING THE PATH OF OLEANDER AND YELLOW DAISIES

PERCEIVING NO ILL WILL

YOU WAITING AT THE OTHER SIDE FOR ME

TO KEEP ME SAFE AND FEED MY HEART

THAT IS JOY UNENCUMBERED

MAKE ME YOUR TEARDROP

MAKE ME YOUR BUTTERFLY

I WILL OBLIGE YOUR HEART

LOVE HAS NO BEGINNING OR END

IT JUST IS

TOMORROW ALL MY DEMONS MAY COME BACK TO VISIT

YET I WILL NOT FACE THEM ALONE

FOR YOU ARE ALWAYS WITH ME

BEFORE I COULD SPELL YOU KNEW MY SOUL

YOU KNEW IT BETTER THAN I KNEW IT MYSELF

CAN JOY HEAL MY BROKEN BODY

YES IT CAN

    Coco, your voice and your poetry is beautiful and inspiring. Thank you so much for sharing with us. My daughter Rhema is about your age and she also recently began communicating by pointing on a letterboard. I know she will love to hear and share in your ode to joy.
