Happy Easter

Happy Easter

Happy Easter, one and all
Think what may be, what may befall
The future comes no matter what
For every soul, life has its slot

And yet a happy time eludes
Where doubt and darkness ever broods
Have caution as you journey on
Lest all your helpers may be gone

A time of angels and of saints
Aware of worldly vice that taints
How could we turn and not allow
The brightness to come through, somehow

A world of wonder in the mind
Which seeks but somehow will not find
For turning from some good advice
A million things could now entice

Take strength then from this Easter-time
For cynics it won’t cost a dime
No pressure, choose that love will win
At Easter let new life begin
