The sun is rising,
The world is strong.
From where I’m standing I’m all awash in light.
The future’s shining,
It’s bright and warm.
A question’s asked, and every answer’s right
My path unfolds before my eyes.
Decisions made, and I divide
Who I could be from who I really am.
At times I stumble and seem to fall,
I learn to navigate it all,
But with the years I find it hard to stand.
It’s getting colder,
The clouds are low,
There’s no horizon I can see in sight.
I think back to
Bright days of dawn.
They keep me warm so I don’t feel the night.
Some things don’t matter now,
Can’t remember why they ever did.
While other things were never more clear than now.
For here I sit at heaven’s gate,
With nothing left to do but wait,
And trust that sunset always brings the dawn.
