Whilst the road ahead is uncertain and strange;
The sun still shines in its ember frame;
The stars still glow in that perfect night sky;
And the moon still smiles down from its throne up on high.
Despite this path, dark and remote;
There is a song to be sung and words to be wrote;
A family to love and a home to keep warm;
Regardless of pain, there will be a new dawn.
The poet inside of me is dead;
All the words that tied have fled.
Why is this you may ask, its true;
To this I have no answer, none due.
No reason for this lack of rhyme,
Unanswered questions? Perhaps in time;
Will unlock this bottomless pit forlorn;
And place me back in peace, reborn.
The pain of letting go, of a chance, to make you whole
When the absence of just a glimpse;
Makes your world about to end.
When life seems so hard that you feel you cant go on.
Weary head dropping to the floor;
Cool tile, caressing this abyss.
Blow after blow, life is dealing now.
Your self worth is shattered;
Bloodied tattered knees.
Pick up what is left?
Embrace your savaged corpse.
With frayed rope, grab on tight.
Claw back to life.
The light of distant places caught.
Imprisoned forever on film.
Snapped in an instant.
The pasts reflection.
In front the future hazy
But beyond a distant light
I see your smile upon me
And the motion steers me right
The upward motion of wanting
The onward motion of time
The downward motion of doubting
All three, at present, are mine
Focus lost and damaged
By all that is now past
Time to build a future
One that’s built to last
Pursue in all to nourish self
In all things you should seek
Friends to soar your unveiled heart
Humour bringing hue to cheek
Wonder to gasp within your chest
Beauty in the average day
Song and dance in dreams in rest
Love as you go your way
For on the days where darkness crawls
These things that you surround
Will be the tether for your mind
To stay on solid ground
