Sunshine And Shadow - Poem by Barry Middleton

I saw the sunshine
the flower of youth

passion and frenzy
the warm glow of truth

a kiss in the spring
the ghost of the wood

for only a moment
then vanished for good

I saw the shadow
a quiet place of sleep

the comfort of midnight
where silence is deep

the pain and the glory
are not understood

still in my lifetime
I wish that I could

sunshine and shadow
I saw it all

whatever comes next
I'll answer the call
