I can’t sleep no matter how much I try My heart is aching with all the why’s My only joy is to think that every night will fly And a dawn of hope will rise at daybreak in the sky Time uncoils and sheds it’s daily skin The gloomy shadows and grief will wane I sit and tend to my heart whose in pain As the dawn in my soul wakes up the night The sunrise follows on the heels of night I know well for I have kept it in sight Sitting in shadows I reach out for light And so in my mind I embrace myself dearly in this fight. 3.5.2021 Sponsor: Charlotte Puddifoot Contest:’ Open poetry 4’
