At the darkest time

At the darkest time On the darkest day, You took my hand, You took me to play. I thought it strange, I thought it wise That there in the wood The secret lies. But then I saw it The flicker of light, The sound of birds As they took to their flight. The ray of sunshine Filled your eyes, Around us filled With silent lies. My smile was met From cheek to cheek, Your hand around mine As your eyes grew weak. I see your face Amongst the light, The day that soon Transformed to night. I’m alone now And alone I’ll stay Till the moon flips over And the sky turns grey. But the hand that took, Took me to play, Is there by my heart And there it will stay.

    Thank you both for your comments. Susan- I tried to create this poem surrounding the idea of death and a child looking back on the memories with someone close to them. "Around us filled with silent lies" is implying that the person who is close to death knows that they will not be around for much longer but the child does not know this. I hope this helped! Jessica

    I don't totally understand what's going on in this poem. it's a little confusing to me, so i hope you don't mind me saying so. i think it's the line "around us filled with silent lies" i don't know what you mean by that. if you want me to shut up, just let me know :P
