Love Will Prevail


You came into my life like a rainbow
after the storms of my life had subsided for a while
but did not promise that the rain would not start again.

You came like a shooting star in my darkest nights
but did not promise that a dark night would not return
and I had find myself wishing on us and on better days.

You became like the eye of the storm
and I did find shelter in you
but you did not promise that the storm would subside

and I reached out for you hot rays
and wished for you to prevail
and found myself having visions of tomorrow
that lasted as long as I believe.

You came into my life
and gave me a reason to wakeup in the morning
when you did become my morning rays
giving a blink into tomorrow
that might be the hope of something
that just might be.

If I do believe in rainbows, shooting stars
and every bright sunrise.
love will prevail.

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Burns

When biting Boreas, fell and doure,
Sharp shivers thro' the leafless bow'r;
When Phoebus gies a short-liv'd glow'r,
Far south the lift,
