Understanding
by thief of dreams

Raindrops falling
Covering everything
With a moving skin
That crawls and slides
Obscuring the tears
Giving cover
To the shadows

It’s an ever changing world
That we all live in
Where happiness becomes pain
Light becomes dark
Only to give away to the dawn
With the unstoppable sun
As it dries the ground
Bringing warmth to the cold
And inviting hope
To those who dwell in their misery

Pain can bring about collapse
But hope and understanding
Can rebuild the broken
And I walk away into the night
Knowing a small smile
Will spread across this face
As longing turns to relief
Not to turn over a new leaf
But to water the hopes of happiness
To come as the rain dries
And the sun lights the skies

No regrets
No self pity
No blame
No hard feelings

Truly a poem worthy of a Poet Laureate.
Worthy of reading and re-reading, with an open mind, to absorb and see how this can apply to all of us.
No regrets
No self pity
No blame
No hard feelings
Amen to that!

Anyone can be passionate, but it takes real lovers to be silly.
