Dear Joy,

Remember me ? The girl that never got tired of you? I must have been a nuisance always claming you all to myself.

I have changed . I am different now. A few years older. Not so proud and self assured. I had a few lessons in humility too.

I feel I need to remind you because you must have forgotten me completely. I am still around. I don’t go out much these days.

I miss you Joy. It’s been way too long since you were here last.

Please come and stay with me a while. I am not that hard to find.

Okay, I will be totally honest with you . I have nothing to lose anyway. Without you my life is meaningless and empty.

I need you if I am to get up in the morning . I need you to make me smile. I need you to let me tell you silly jokes, to entertain you with my clowning and to have us laugh until our faces hurt. Just like we used to.

Please come back to me, just one more time, I beg you. I need you like a flower needs the sun. Like a bee needs the honey.

Forgive me for anything I have done that has made you go away. Please give me another chance , I just can not imagine never having you around again. Just the thought freezes my heart. I promise to take good care of you and never to take you for granted, ever again.
