I contemplate sorrow, and it becomes a tear.
The tear fills me and spills over.
I tremble with weeping.
I am become sorrow.
I cry, and the moment of pain is everlasting.
My grief stretches into eternity.
I am encircled by suffering.
I am become pain.
I wait, and my waiting becomes a solace.
My space is the heavens and the earth.
I am stilled by infinite understanding.
I am become peace.
I smile, and my laughter flows through me and around me.
Gladness runs down my cheeks like rivers.
I drown in sparkling pools of delight.
I am become joy.
