standing still

smell the summer eve as light turns to dusk look over the urban houses and past the humans 
faces looking to the sky 
inhale deep trying to find peace.  tears roll down in sorrow and longing perhaps one day the 
long away peace will come
will the answers come if you seek or will the truth tear you apart questioning all you believe 
only if the sky is heaven and the raindrops that fall are reminders of hope, of love, or letters
messages sent down below to those on earth trying to recoup all that is lost
to move on to let time ease the wounds that never seem to fade 
yet somehow if the hurt fades and the anger goes will your face be wash away when i close 
my eyes? 
like chains of grief that bind me and your the key 
will the key ever come to let the chains fall away

    Sad one Dana. The answers always find a way. The key will come. The key is locked away in your soul. Just find the combination to release it from your soul. Gareth
