A Song Before Sunrise

The clouds took over the sky last night;
They let the stars go home —
She couldn’t sleep, try as she might,
And so began to roam

By the edge of the somnolent, silent sea,
She made her patient way;
With walking dreams for her company
At the trembling start of a day

  And oh how the matters
  That once were so big,
  Go drifting and floating
  Away
  For now, now she holds on
  To what is most dear
  At the edge of a trembling
  Day

The sand her bare feet were made to one;
Her heart and the surf are in tune —
It’s better, when of all the learning’s been done
To shed the remaining cocoon

She didn’t think possible, all of that woe,
To live through the pain and the bad;
But all that she needed to move and to grow
Was the strength that she already had

  And oh how the matters
  That once were so big,
  Go drifting and floating
  Away
  For now, now she holds on
  To what is most dear
  At the edge of a trembling
  Day
