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
