Every Tomorrow



~~~

There was a time

When the weight of my world

Fell onto tired shoulders

With little strength to fight

~~~

I watched the sun set

On so many, many things

And was trapped within

The slowly dying light

~~~

The shadows there

Held every brilliant wrong

As the coming darkness hid

Anything, as yet, still right

~~~

And the candles you lit

Could not breathe that air

Crushed by the despair

That dark became the night

~~~

In blindness, I groped

To find the will and want

Bear the weight, one more day

Not give in to undue plight

~~~

Like time stood still

I did not count the days

Before a blessed sunrise

Began to share its bright

~~~

And the lesson learned

In a valley, so gray and low

Is that every tomorrow

Holds a hope for sight

~~~
