my awakening

half haunting 
a full moon
staring at it 
through eyes 
of half light
pale ashen 
with cold

everything seems 
a distant horizon
grey shadows 
of life
a glimmer 
of hope
the face 
of desperate times

my soul 
seeks peace
far off
in a distant planet
like a wolf alone
lost in 
my own wilderness
my spirit speaks
was it written 
in the stars

alone with 
distant memories
my unwritten future
finding the path 
to my soul
to comfort 
my heart
in its time 
of need

to look again
the moon smiling
in wishing 
a smile 
on my face
i see you smiling
my life 
is for living

it was meant to be
as the glass 
on my eyes
glistens with sadness
feeling the cold 
run down 
my face
memories of happiness
memories of hurt 
with those of sadness
in the night sky

a universe 
of answers
i look forward 
to awakening
the dawning 
of light
a beautiful present 
this night
the dawning 
of spring
bringing with it 
new beginnings

    This is excellent. I like how it's bittersweet.
