Just One Day - Poem by Jessica Kelly

The days are growing brighter.
A light is in my view.
It seems that I have found again
the laughter I once knew.

I'm no longer dazed and dizzy,
though my head continues spinning.
It spins much slower now,
it seems the whirlwind's pull is thinning.

There are still days when my world's light
seems to dim and flicker.
There are still days when my heart seems
to bleed a little thicker.

But though my tears still come and go,
they no longer burn my face.
Though I still at times feel crowded,
It seems I've found some breathing space.

Some nights are dark, the stars seem few,
fading slowly with my smile.
Those are the nights my life looks sad,
useless, not worthwhile.

But the sun, it always rises.
Even on those cloudy days.
And through the rain and black, black sky
it pushes through it's rays.

And as I shift my gaze above
to stare into the sun.
It smiles at me and reassures...
My life has just begun!

Night does come. The world grows dark.
And I cannot predict
when the grief will hit and knock me down
and pain on me inflict.

But somehow I am comforted
I feel peaceful, calm and warm.
Knowing that, with Grace on my side,
I'll make it through the storm.
