Dawn!


Memories dawn on me
at the nightfall, have you seen
where's gone the darkness?

    Ah....the after glow of lost loved ones
    beautifully depicted....
    a bit ironic and dark in its effect....nicely penned well conceived with great compression

    The darkness envelopes the sweet memories
    and the bitter also
    In the darkness we examine our memoriess
    For there is too much to bear in the brightness of daylight.
    So in our twilight and embracing the darkness
    we dream and comes the cures we seek to continue into all our tomorrows (Report) Reply

Of Earth may shrive me of the sin
