An old one..
Dawn in my mind.
Lost and alone I grew cold,
Darkness wrapped around me,
Each step in fear of death,
I bled emotions in the silence.
There was yet a pale light ahead,
And voices, friends, calling my name,
I stumbled and crawled forward,
Making headway then sliding back.
A flickering lamp to light my way,
Dawn approaching slowly in my mind.
The sounds of friends grew nearer,
The words they spoke became clearer.
Through a mist of bitter tears
I watched the darkness fade behind,
Icy fingers still reaching out,
I walked into the new beginning.
The pain has dulled as helping hands,
Heal the wounds and speak softly,
Time will heal and emotions renew,
Life continues along my road.
