Poem: The Sun Will Rise Again

i disappeared through the cracks of life,
like a candle burnt out in the night,
and nobody noticed but him;
pulled bed covers over my head,
as long-winding days felt like dread,
and the depth of my being began to weep.

slow down o my soul, don’t be so hasty,
the sun will rise, you’ll see;
together, we will dance again,
we’ll twirl and release the chain,
just hang in there, in time, you’ll see.

i disappeared through the cracks of life,
like an injured bird without its flight,
and nobody cared but him;
put a brave face on for the world,
but inside there’s a raging war,
as I choose life over death repeatedly.

slow down o my soul, don’t be so hasty,
the clouds will move on, you’ll see;
together, we will sing that song,
we’ll chirp like those hummingbirds,
just hang in there, very soon, you’ll see.

i disappeared through the cracks of life,
like a thief stealing diamonds in the night,
and decided to reach out to him;
he extended his loving hand,
whispered softly, “it’ll be ok,”
and ok, I now feel it seems.

slow down o my soul, don’t be so hasty,
tomorrow has hope, you’ll see;
together, we will laugh out loud,
we’ll learn to befriend those clouds,
just hang in there, i promise, you’ll see.
