April 1: What got you here?

here i sit
listening to
       “so now you know you got a ‘G’ ”
music lessons
wondering exactly
how did i arrive
at this spot of
       hearing
a too loud piano
sleepily drinking my
coffee
and typing worrying
over doing my   
       homework.

it is more than the
vehicle that travelled
the winding road
over the flooding
       river.

i remember warmth
of love one night
long ago as we
weathered another
storm and mourned
the loss of another
       one
but in the loss
we created a moment
of joy that led to
an even bigger
       joy.

so no matter how
many flooding rivers
i have to cross or
how much bad
        music
i must hear

it is all counted joy.
