Tender Poem

I thank Thee for Pain,
the sister of Joy.
I thank Thee for Sorrow,
the twin of Happiness.
Pain, Joy, Sorrow, Happiness.
Four angels at work on the Well of Love.
Pain and Sorrow dig it deep with aches.
Joy and Happiness fill it up with tears
that come with smiles.
For the seasons of emotion in my heart,
I thank Thee, O Lord.
