Not by Chance or Happenstance

Friday, August 05, 2011

In our lives come many things
to break the dull routine,
The things we had not planned on
that happen unforeseen,
The unexpected little joys
that are scattered on my way,
Success we did not count on
or a rare, fulfilling day--
A catchy, lilting melody
that makes us want to dance,
A nameless exaltation
of enchantment and romance--
An unsought work of kindness,
a compliment or two
That sets the eye to gleaming
like crystal drops of dew,
The unplanned sudden meeting
that comes with sweet surprise
And lights the heart with happiness
like a rainbow in the skies,
Now some folks call it fickle fate
and some folks call in chance,
While others just accept it
and pleasant happenstance,
but no matter what you call it,
it didn't come without design,
For all our lives are fashioned
And every happy happening
and every lucky break
Are little gifts from God above
that are ours to freely take.
