A Better Day

I have longed for a day like
this ever since I can remember.
On this better Day I dont want to
feel the worries that I carry.
I want to be able to breathe
and not feel trapped.
To be able to let go and be
myself would mean everything.
On this better Day I want to be
with that one person and no one else.
I want to be able to close my eyes
and re open them to see the world at it's
glory and not see the damage that has
been inflicted on it.
I want every problem that this world has seen
to just go away and for everyone to start fresh.
I know this is a long shot for a day like this to ever
happen but theres always hope that it might just
happen one day.
I want to witness this Better Day.

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

A little while a little love
The hour yet bears for thee and me
Who have not drawn the veil to see
If still our heaven be lit above.
Thou merely, at the day's last sigh,
