There is Tomorrow

i watched the sun going down at twilight
the color deeming slowly out of my sight
darkness hovering skies in a silent night
with passing hours waiting for sunlight

…………….there is tomorrow
………………….bare no sorrow

i felt the wind touching my skin…so cold
wrapping the heart and soul that i behold
with this journey of life to tell and be told
in riddles and puzzles in a hundredfold

…………….. there is tomorrow
……………………to spare and borrow

eyes may fall in slumber for thousands of day
frozen amidst the blooming sunflowers to stay
towing the tears as the morning dewdrops lay
on velvety soft petals under the suns colorful ray

…………….. there is tomorrow
……………………… without a hollow

awakened in a morning of fulfilling brightness
smiles reborn without the blues of lonesomeness
dares another day to trail once more in the vastness
the trodden and the untrodden in life’s wilderness

    Such a lovely and picturesque poem. Each stanza followed by a meaningful and beautiful couplet adds to its beauty.
    Loved the optimistic refrain ” There is tomorrow.”
