A Certain Glow


along with every step of our journey in life,
we pick every bits and piece of treasured moments…
kept and stored within the deepest part of our heart
every now and then we look back with a certain glow,
a certain smile on our lips and a sparkle in our eyes

our existence is never a bed of roses in a velvety petal
there were thorns that can make us bleed and feel pain
nor would it be a calming sea to enjoy the windy breeze
waves could come rushing into the shore and whimpering
none can tell the tales of burdens that life can tag along

so we walk on and garner those scattered pieces of joy
go ahead onward to that destined shore of new hope
from a glimpse of the light that cast our shadows behind
with our footsteps as we flap our wings to soon leave
and meet the foremost horizon that awaits the dawning

finding that certain glow fulfilling the dreams we hold on
from the mysteries of life into the mystic enchantments
where the rainbow’s end be found with lights and colors
that overcast on the blues and the blackness of the dark
so the silent whispers of the heart are heard once again

let the melody of the sirens song allured not of death
but instill life anew, on a newborn majestic glow of morn
upon this rock on the pearly shore, our voice shall rise
to tell the world the tales of our life from gloom to bloom
let there be the mirth in every corner with a certain glowNo automatic alt text available.
