A better day, a better night.
No tears or fears or even frights.
A flower colors our garden
With many rainbow hues,
Expressing our feelings
In Yellow, reds and blues.
I am down inside a sadness that won't leave me alone.
When I think of you and things that you've said
I manage a smile and it makes me free
For a moment, I fly
Steady breeze blowing flags
Receding brown of greening grass
Single blackbird winging high
A warming Spring gives gentle sigh
Must I face this clear bright day?
With heavy Heart
and sorrowful soul?
The sunlight ebbs and flows
When I breathe are you there?
In the stillness of the house as it settles,
Whether the afternoon drone of distant lawnmower
Or in the burning of a candle late at night,
My emotions run
Like the sea to the shore.
Rising up high
Retreating so low.
In my mind's eye
I could see you there
Physically, mentally, spiritually, sensually.
I could sense something beyond my vision.
I've traveled to many places.
Places I didn't expect to be.
Witnessed the August meteors
From a small Swiss balcony.
