IT TAKES TIME TO SEE THE LIGHT

IT TAKES TIME TO SEE THE LIGHT Death is best taught in the dark Fetching sticks, setting sparks Its bag of tricks: sickness and hope A black curtain vanishes The magician leaves you with a moonless night A lonely night without stars And you work to locate those sparkling crystals And place them one at a time back in the sky But tears fall like glass, resetting the progress You need to accept the inevitable But no one can do the Impossible So cling to the possible Surround yourself with an armloads of friends Let them take turns dabbing your mascara As their handkerchiefs turn from white to black One day you’ll find the moon back in its place You will wonder how long you missed it 1st Place 4/7/2017 DIDACTIC FORM
