An offering of heartfelt poetry...

In the dullness of daylight

when, the heavy cloak of life

like the clouds, overwhelms the sun.

When, life seems grey and uninspiring

And even, the hint of your dreams materializing

seems too difficult to bear, then

Watch your clouds

Dare them to: stand still

Milky merges that, appeared motionless will

actually before your eyes

drift away.

And, you will see that

Your time, has come

sadness is blinded

Stunned away. Defeated by

Your sunshine through the clouds, only

Hold on...
