Sunrise of the Soul
Black night recedes calling forth its family of shadows
Beckoning warmth clarity, hope and light
As if to gather all its wayward offspring
Now ready to bestow the gift of sights.
So long to live in dim and darkness
To think I saw when I was blind
Myths and unicorns existed
Dancing freely in my mind.
The warmth a precious gift of others
Now welcomed openly in this life
The joy so quickly multiplies
As I bask there reducing strife.
The clarity, oh the clarity
Is what I see now real
Or yet another illusion
When there can truly be no seal.
With glee I wave goodbye to dark
Dancing with all my body and heart
Yet trepidation shakes my soul
For with one the other is part.
Hope, the lifeblood of us all
Coursing and pulsing in my veins
Without you life is nothing
Not an infinitesimal speck or grain.
Knowledge, vision, life
Light you come and then you go
Always changing, traveling, flirting
In minute moments to let us know.
And so I know but nothing
It may appear there is no change
Yet still the sun now shines within
When but once was out of range.
