Night And Cloud - Poem by Barry Middleton

nighttime clouds painted black
the colors that I knew
just yesterday

the chaos of the stars tonight
I know cannot break through
my bleak dismay

a silence palpable has come
to pour its emptiness
into the dark

until I hear the dawn's first bird
who brings some tenderness
with his remark

he knows the night will always pass
to bring a grand new day
I know he's right

the sun will come with every hue
of vision on display
in shining light

oh I have seen some grief before
my window like a wall
that had no view

that's when I learned if I just wait
and also give my all
I make it through
