19 Mar Dawn of Spring
The essence of hope is intrinsic;
Eyes open seconds fall earth turns and we turn too
But the body stops and stares in space, frozen, unable to move,
Paralyzed, gripped, unable to step beyond self-imposed reality;
Held down find it difficult to breathe, but then, freedom from reverie
Comes in words from someone close who wants the life they see
To breathe, who wants the life they see to bloom
Like flowers of the coming dawn when life’s reborn once motionless
Awakened from the senseless night when touched by rays
Of guiding light.
Our dawn has come to wake us up
And feel the warmth that knows no end
With self it’s time to make amends to then be there
A caring friend who needs to feel the touch of light
To see that their soul too burns bright;
Brighter than long lost vanished stars
A star means hope through empty nights.
The heat is felt and when it burns
A white hot color passed through words
Derived from a heart that was once touched too
I hope they’ve found their way to you
Together, we will make it through.
It’s spring; can you feel it?
Pass along this call for hope,
Step outside, and breathe.
