Autumn Rain

Still, amid the silent morning

Autumn Rain

Woke this morning
To discover
That my heart was
Beating still

Still, amid the
Silent morning
Bargaining with
Mind and will

Will I ever
Know the comfort
That I knew in
Days gone by?

By the window
Drops are streaming
Gentle Autumn
Starts to cry

Morning, Morning

Daily Nightmare

Morning, morning on my brain
Listing out my daily tasks;
Frantic, hectic, and insane
Questions that nobody asks

Morning, why the weight of care?
Time is fleeting as the tide;
Night, I hope to see you there
Safely on the other side

Morning, morning, will it be
This way each and ever day?
Is this just my destiny?
The toll I must forever pay?
