One Day - Poem by Godfrey Morris

One Day

Sometimes I feel the best part is gone to remember
Sometimes I feel my life is over
Life again can never be the same
The light will never gaze my face in the morning
The wind will not blow my way again
Life pounds so swiftly, harder than a judge's hammer
But still, I wander and even ponder
To seek good cheer and assuage my anger
Though seemingly impossible it tends to be
I pray the worse may past
And I, be restored in good favour, yet again
To dream once again of a promising tomorrow
To play and dance in gleaming sunlight
I know at last that this will come to past
However far away it lies ahead
For every tomorrow leads further from today
And one tomorrow might just be that day
But for now I keep steadfast, proud and brave
The stars I know will guide my way

    Wow, internal wandering of spiritual, physical and mental meaning without an answer - as we just have no overstanding! (Report) Reply
