A Day In the Sun
I have had my time in the sun,
felt its golden rays on my skin,
the way it warmed me to the core.
to lay in the sun and be enveloped by its
it is the most peaceful thing in the world.
to run along the sand, care free and happy,
feeling the cool wind on my face,
and the tepid ocean at my feet,
these things, set my mind at ease.
but now a brisk wind has blown up,
there are dark clouds on the horizon,
my flesh is stung by droplets of hard driving rain.
to be caught in a storm, with nowhere to hide,
to be chilled to the bone by freezing moisture,
this can stifle my spirit, and drown my soul.
there is an emptiness I feel as I lay alone
in the cold darkness of night,
a sadness to know what I have lost,
thinking, if I could wish it all away,
I would do so many things differently,
if I could do it all over again......
but I cannot.
I hope, one day, the wind will blow strong from
chasing away this terrible weather,
if only for a moment,
so I can once again have a day in the sun.
Love heals everything
