The sun sets on another day…

As noted a few days ago I found an old handwritten composition book with numerous poetry excerpts in it. I am sharing a few along the way. Today’s is not as upbeat as I normally write or is it?


The darkness falls deep inside my soul, the chill is real

I shiver in the cool embrace, not cold but feeling the edge

The depths of my heart are tested by the binding grasp

My mind awash in the edge of forevermore

I look out and see the spec of light, the light so small it barely shines

and as I reach the edge of dark, I know that without darkness I cannot know the light

So as the sun sets on another day, perhaps we need the darkness to know the light. Perhaps we need a broken heart to know how to feel, pain to know happiness and more. I know it is a strange thought, but if you think about it, if the light is always on how would we know? Live life every day to its fullest, take chances, laugh, love, and mostly live, no matter what.

Sleep sweet, love often, and laugh even more…
