Sunlight in My Eyes


I’m throwing open the shutters,

So sunlight can flood the room,

I’m tired of shadows in my mind,

Brightness will erase the gloom,

I’ve been looking to escape the world,

My house has been my cave,

I can hold shadows off for awhile,

But I’m tired of being so brave,

The world last night seemed grim and dark,

Uncertainty overpowered my life,

But sunlight bouncing off the floor,

 Sliced the darkness like a knife,

Shadows of the past stand tall,

When the clock strikes one or two,

I wish I had an opportunity to express,

That I’d always be true to you,

Because you’re gone, I’m not sad at all,

It’s sunlight in my eyes,

This has been such a beautiful day,

It caught me by surprise,

I’ll stand by the Christmas tree,

And sing a song or two,

And no one will ever know,

That I’m really missing you.

  1. Sometimes those old nights really can be quite difficult to get through I spent about three years sleeping an hour here and two there cause I didn’t want to be alone with my thoughts. I drank them away at times and drove my self into the ground. The only thing that really helped me get past it was helping everyone else…I preoccupied my self till one day it hurt a little less then I knew at that point that …there would be an end to it. Peace be with you.

    1. Perhaps I’m a slow learner or have to learn the same lesson over and over and over–well you understand. I became so busy with jobs, being a single parent, discovering myself all over again, after going through dark nights, drinking, etc. Peace arrived but did not stay. Each time I’ve gotten older and wiser.

      May the sun be on your face and the wind at your back as the Lord blesses you throughout the day. Carpe diem!
