Finding Joy In the Tears

Based in part on Ecclesiastes 3:4:

Live Laugh Love at Gilmour

Finding Joy In the Tears
by Michael Doyle

In looking back on my many years
I am finding joy in the tears
There in the sweet music for my ears
Is the finding of joy in the tears

From the laughter to the mourning
From darkness of night until morning
A life is full of joy and sorrow
A passing of yesterday into tomorrow

With a flash of remembered smile
It's all been worth the while
For the comfort in all that we mourn
Such is life from the moment born

Here in these moments of contemplation
Where I find your love and my redemption
Are the best of things to think on
Until that final moment when all is gone

We hope; we pray; even as we grieve
Knowing the meaning behind what we believe
All was possible that we might conceive
With only the devil of doubt to deceive

Laughter can bring strength in our disbelief
Quite often more it's instant stress relief
But most of all it cures our times of grief
And this too brings us back to belief

All these moments we stop to question why
Choking it down with laughter as we reply
It's better to smile a laugh than to cry
Maybe that is the secret to answering  why

In looking back on my many years
I am finding joy in the tears
There in the soft music for my ears
Is the finding of joy in my tears
